Overview

Give Me Back My Legions! by Harry Turtledove

Bestselling author Harry Turtledove turns his attention to an epic battle that pits three Roman legions against Teutonic barbarians in a thrilling novel of Ancient Rome: Give Me Back My Legions!

Publius Quinctilius Varus, a Roman politician, is summoned by the Emperor, Augustus Caesar. Given three legions and sent to the Roman frontier east of the Rhine, his mission is to subdue the barbarous German tribes where others have failed, and bring their land fully under Rome's control.

Arminius, a prince of the Cherusci, is playing a deadly game. He serves in the Roman army, gaining Roman citizenship and officer's rank, and learning the arts of war and policy as practiced by the Romans. What he learns is essential for the survival of Germany, for he must unite his people against Rome before they become enslaved by the Empire and lose their way of life forever.

An epic battle is brewing, and these two men stand on opposite sides of what will forever be known as The Battle of the Teutoberg Forest—a ferocious, bloody clash that will change the course of history.

It was a good book. It's often slow but its fairly interesting.

If you enjoyed the movie "Braveheart" you will love this book. This is a true story and it has everything. The author really brought the battle to life. I remember watching I, Claudius on T.V. as a kid, and this book gives a great deal of information about those ancient times. When you are finished with this book, you will be very grateful to live in the 21st century!

I'm not sure if the author is VERY lacking or just plain drab, but this book is a horrid read. The author just goes over and over again how Arminius hates Rome; how Arminius hates Varus; and again, and again, and again. Don't even bother!!!!!!!

This book is boring until almost the end,all you read is how much varus liked arminnus . Would be a good book if the plot would come sooner.however this does give background for the trilogy mariaus mules thenyou know how the battle of teutonbourgh wald took place.
