Description

Primera entrega de la trilog?a ??guilas de Roma?, la saga hist?rica que narra uno de los acontecimientos m?s relevantes de la historia del Imperio Romano.

Tiempo de venganza

A?o 9 d.C., frontera con Germania: cerca del r?o Rhenus, un centuri?n romano, Lucius Tullus, se prepara para salir de patrulla con sus soldados. En el lado opuesto del r?o, las tribus germ?nicas est?n resentidas por los duros tributos que est?n a punto de caer sobre ellas. Tullus sospecha que puede haber una revuelta. Y sabe que la supervivencia de sus hombres depender? no solo de su disciplina y adiestramiento, sino de su propia capacidad de liderazgo.

Tiempo de guerra

Lo que ni Tullus ni su superior, el gobernador Varo, saben es que frente a ellos se encuentra tambi?n el carism?tico Arminio, antiguo aliado de Roma, que lleva tiempo tramando como echar a los romanos de las tierras al este de Rhenus.

Tiempo de muerte

Mientras las legiones de Varo se preparan para abandonar el campamento, miles de guerreros germanos, dirigidos por Arminio, se re?nen en territorios cercanos. Ansiosos por liberarse del yugo romano, los hombres de las tribus afilan sus armas y preparan su mort?fero asalto.
Ahora, solo los dioses podr?n salvar a los romanos.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION
From the author of The Forgotten Legion, the first in a gripping three-part series based on actual historical events.
In the summer of 9 CE, Publius Varus, the Roman governor of Germania, and Lucius Tullus, a centurion garrisoned on the Rhine, march east with three legions. As they prepare to return to their winter quarters, they are lured off the road and ambushed by German warriors. The Germans are led by Arminius, a chieftain who is a trusted ally of Rome--and a man who has been secretly planning to betray the empire since childhood. Trapping Varus' legionaries between a hillside and a marsh, and thereby preventing them from forming up or using their artillery, Arminius and his warriors wreak a terrible slaughter. The Roman defeat is overwhelming, but it is not until the third day of the massacre that the scale of Arminius' victory becomes clear. Three legions, upwards of 14,000 men, have been annihilated, and three treasured Eagle standards have been lost. Just a few hundred legionaries, including Tullus, manage to escape. Nor is the survivors' ordeal over. Pursued to the last Roman fort east of the Rhine, they are besieged by thousands of bloodthirsty tribesmen. Only the gods can save them now.
