Description

When Centurion Macro arrives on the shores of Britain to take part in the Emperor Claudius's invasion in the summer of AD 43, he knows he will be facing one of the toughest campaigns of his battle-scarred career. But nothing could have prepared him for the brutality and bravery of the British warriors. In a series of bloody battles, Macro and his young subordinate, Optio Cato, and the desperately outnumbered Roman army, must find and defeat the enemy before he can grow strong enough to overwhelm the legions. But the Britons are not the only foe facing Macro and Cato. A sinister organisation opposed to the Emperor is secretly betraying the brave men of the legions. And when rumours of an assassination attempt coincide with the Emperor's arrival on British soil, the soldiers realise they are up against a force more ruthless than their acknowledged enemy, and that time is running out if they are to prevent Claudius's glorious victory turning to disaster.show more
