    Back cover copy
    The Saga of the Most Celebrated Legion of the Early Roman EmpireIn Nero's Killing Machine, the second in the author's definitive histories of the legions of ancient Rome, Stephen Dando-Collins brings the 14th Legion to vivid life. Drawing upon thirty-two years of research, he traces the legion's steps as they were wiped out while in the army of Julius Caesar, then reformed only to be savaged again. For decades the men of the 14th would struggle to regain their lost status, slowly climbing back to glory before eventually claiming a legendary victory over Britain's Queen Boudicca, despite being vastly outnumbered. Uncovering new information about the legionnaires' lives and Roman military practices, Nero's Killing Machine is military history at its finest.
