Editorial Reviews


"Written in readable, popular style, Caesar's Legion is a must for military buffs and anyone interested in Roman history at a critical point in European civilization."

-- "T. R. Fehrenbach, author of Lone Star"

This is a short history of Julius Caesar's fabled Tenth Legion, one of the main instruments in his many conquests and something of a military legend that lasted long after Caesar's death. Dando-Collins has a grand, gripping story to tell here: We get massive battles, hard-won victories, and a parade of memorable characters. This is certainly a vigorous and entertaining way to read Roman history.

-- "Barnes & Noble, editorial review" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.


"A unique and splendidly researched story, following the trials and triumphs of Julius Caesar's Legio X--arguably the most famous legion of its day--from its activation to the slogging battle of Munda and from Thapsus, Caesar's tactical masterpiece, to the grim siege of the Jewish fortress of Masada. More than a mere unit account; it incorporates the history of Rome and the Roman army at the heighth of their power and gory glory. Many military historians consider Caesar's legions the world's most efficient infantry before the arrival of gunpowder. This book shows why. Written in readable, popular style, CAESAR'S TENTH, is a must formilitary buffs and anyone interested in Roman history at a critical pointin European civilization." (T. R. Fehrenbach, author of THIS KIND OF WAR, LONE STAR, COMANCHES, and other distinguished works of history.) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
