Product Description

Caesar & his 10th Legion make camp near Cicero. Fearing a widespread rebellion in Northern Gaul he disperses his army throughout the region. Gaius Favius (1st Legion) is sent to the Morini, Titus Labienus (2nd, 4th, Legions) to the Menapii, Gaius Trebonius (5th, 6th, 9th Legions) to the Aduatuci, Marcus Crassus (3rd Legion) to the Belgae, Lucius Roscius Fabatus (13th Legion) to the Esubii & Lucius Plancus (11th Legion) is ordered to remain in the land of the Carnutes. Cicero (12th legion & reinforced by the 14th Legion) will remain where he is. The Centurion & his century guided by Scout Lutatius Livia are to be a flying squad, going to wherever they are most needed. Indutiomarus, a Treveri chief & Ambiorix, a Eburones Prince meet in Dundutorum & plan an attack against Fabatus’s single legion, hoping to lure Caesar into a trap. Marcus recovers from his wounds. Fabatus is attacked by 26,000 Senones, Carnutes & Treveri warriors. Quintus inadvertently ignores his urgent messages for reinforcements. Believing Caesar & his legion are coming to the rescue half the Gauls hide in a forest so they can ambush him. The Centurion & his century are sent to support Fabatus. After the Centurion attacks the enemy he is captured. The Gauls move their camp. Lutatius & Marcus rescue the Centurion who races back to warn Caesar of the trap the Gauls have set. Caesar has a plan. The Centurion is tasked with capturing or killing Indutiomarus & Ambiorix. Caesar outwits the Gauls & is victorious after a ferocious battle. The Centurion is surrounded & rescued by Caesar who is wounded. The Centurion kills Indutiomarus but Ambiorix escapes. Caesar initiates a policy of slash & burn against the Treveri as punishment. Acco, a duplicitous Senones chief pleads for peace with Caesar. Cicero moves to Sabinus’ & Cotta’s former camp. Duntorum is razed. Ambiorix takes refuge among the Amoricans (the Lexovii, Redones, & Aulerci). At Mediolanum, chief town of the Eburones Bardum, a Druid tells the Centurion that Ambiorix plans to kill Caesar & offers to show the Centurion a shorter way to Caesar’s camp. They fight Aulerci stragglers, are surrounded by enemy cavalry & trapped by Ambiorix who vows to overthrow Roman rule in Northern Gaul after he rouses the Germans. Caesar realizes he is also trapped. Lutatius Livia looks for the Centurion. Caesar defeats the Aulerci. Ambiorix escapes across the Rhine. Livia finds the Centurion. Together they go to Cicero’s camp where they are attacked by German cavalry. Caesar invades Germany & learns the Suebi are waiting to ambush him in the Bacenis forest. The Centurion & Tribune Volusenus go to Ocelum, chief town of the Ubii to hunt for Ambiorix. Caesar marches on the Germans. The Centurion finds Ambiorix who tells him the Germans have crossed the Rhine below the bridge & are about to attack Caesar. The Centurion kills Ambiorix & races to warn Caesar of the impending attack. Cicero informs the Centurion that Caesar has gone to the land of the Menapii. Cicero’s camp is besieged by Germans. Cicero is rescued by Caesar who then goes to Durocortorum where he whips Acco to death. The Centurion presents Caesar with Ambiorix’s head. With peace in Northern Gaul assured Caesar leaves for the assizes & the Centurion goes to Rome where he is faced with an almost insurmountable problem.

Thoroughly enjoyed this novel. Had not read any of J M Garlock's books before stumbling across this one. Will definitely be reading the rest of this series. Plot and characters well constructed and I really enjoyed his version of Caesar. Highly recommend lovers of Ancient Rome to delve in.

3.0 out of 5 stars Get it right 24 July 2016
By roberta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The author's research department was woefully inept in several instances. The latin word for sword is GLAD-I-US not gladus.. hence gladiator. Also the word for spears is PILA(plural) I believe, pilum is singular. The author also states that Marius predated Caesar by 100 or so years when actually they coexisted he was Caesar's uncle by marriage. Scipio Africanus updated the Roman military around 200 B.C. and Caesar made significant changes 140 years later.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stand by for the ending of the Roman Republic 17 May 2016
By Dr. Dayle Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Reading a first hand account of the complex and internecine war that flowed inevitably when Caesar took the gamble of a lifetime to cross the otherwise wholly insignificant small creek in northern Italy called the Rubicon. That name together with what it symbolises has come down to us in this century, pregnant with the same meaning it had when Caesar left Gaul for the last time destined for Rome, or so it now seems.
His arrival in Rome was not the cause of the civil war: that wretched war had its origins in the destruction of what was left of the old Republic after the disputes between Marius and Sulla.
Having left Gaul and on arriving near Rome he became aware (if he did not already know through his spies) that Pompey was challenging him with others from the Senate. The disputing parties were unable to agree on what should happen to Caesar and his legions and the inevitable dispute broke out, with each contending side arguing that the right was on their side only.
It was a bit brave of Pompey to take on Caesar with is almost unbroken string of victories in Gaul with his own well prepared and loyal legions, but during the war that followed this loyalty was to be severely tested.
Caesar made sure that the western section of the republic (Spain) was secured, but not for long.
The next confrontation occurred against Pompey and culminated at the battle of Pharsala. This was followed by the war in Egypt (it was still a civil war) , then Africa and then Spain. With only a year to live before his murder on the floor of the Senate, Gaius Julius Caesar, born in 100 BCE went on to take a dictatorship for a decade, and he died with it having 9 years to run.
That there are historical issues as to just who had written which parts of these books is still a matter for debate: but the story that they convey is a powerful and evocative image of the end of the republic of Rome and the commencement of the Imperial reign of Caesars designated successor, his grand nephew Octavian, better know as Augustus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Enjoyable Novel of Caesar in Gaul 18 June 2016
By James Dainis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
There is unrest in northern Gaul. Caesar and his legions arrive in time to save the defenders of a fortified camp that had been besieged by the Gauls. Seeing all the dead legionnaires, Caesar vows revenge. Meanwhile, Ambiorix, an Eburones prince, convinces Indtuiomarus, a Treveri chief, to attack one of the Roman legions and lure Caesar into a trap. When things don't go as the Gauls planned Ambiorix flees the battle field and will seek other allies to wage war on Caesar and the Romans. Caesar tasks the Centurion, Sextius Baculus, to seek out and bring back Ambiorix's head.

This is another well written book with characters that seem true to life. The relationship between Caesar and his less than brave aide-de-camp, Quintus, is often amusing. The relationships between centurion Baculus and his orderly, Marcus, and the men of his century is shown to be one of respectful camaraderie despite harsh discipline. As in previous stories there is a good deal of well described battle action. Also as in previous stories the centurion is sent out either alone or with a scout to gather information behind enemy lines. Or, he and his century are sent out alone on private missions into enemy territory. It all makes for very interesting and enjoyable reading.

As good or better than Scarrow or Iggulden. Lots of action. Once you start reading it, you can't put it down. The six books are great, I wish the seventh comes out tomorrow!
