(From the publisher):
It's A.D. 79 and an old man, Lucius Quintus Claudianus, has been abandoned in a villa outside Herculaneum. As the eruption of Vesuvius builds to its devastating climax, Lucius writes the story of his life—including the part he played seventy years before when three entire legions were caught and massacred in the German forests.
In Germania, John Wilson tells the extraordinary story of The Battle of Teutoburg Forest, during which the Cherusci tribe of Northern Germany handed the Roman army one of its greatest military defeats. It is a riveting, haunting tale that will leave readers clamouring for more.
