Product description

The seventh novel in Simon Scarrow's bestselling Roman series. Trouble is brewing in Syria, on the eastern frontier of the Roman Empire. With the troops in a deplorable state, centurions Macro and Cato are despatched to restore the competence of the cohort. But another challenge faces them as Bannus, a local tribesman, is brewing up trouble and preaching violent opposition to Rome. As the local revolt grows in scale, Macro and Cato must stamp out corruption in the cohort and restore it to fighting fitness to quash Bannus - before the eastern provinces are lost to the Empire forever...

Once again the adventures of macro and cato are laid before us, really enjoyed it as always...Scarrow always concentrates on story content rather than fact and figures which he uses only to support the story. Loved it.
