UNDER THE EAGLE (Eagles of the Empire I)
AD 42, Germany. New recruit Cato is finding life in the Roman Second Legion brutal. Promoted above his comrades thanks to his connections, he's resented by the other men. He could really use a friend amongst his fellow soldiers right now.
A brave and determined soldier, Cato quickly earns the respect of his Centurion, Macro, a battle-hardened veteran. On a campaign to Britannia - a land of utter barbarity - an enduring friendship begins. But as they battle to thwart a conspiracy against the Emperor the men find themselves in a desperate fight to survive...
THE EAGLE'S CONQUEST (Eagles of the Empire II)
Britannia, AD 43. Britannia is bleak, rainy and full of vicious savages. As right-hand man to Centurion Macro, young soldier Cato battles alongside his commander in bloodier combat than he could ever have imagined.
But the Britons are fighting back with Roman weapons - which means someone in their own ranks is supplying arms to the enemy. Cato and Macro are about to discover even deadlier adversaries than the British barbarians...
WHEN THE EAGLE HUNTS (Eagles of the Empire III)
Britannia, AD 44. Cato and Macro are pawns in Rome's lust to conquer Britain. During the freezing winter, the two men and their legion fight the bloodthirsty natives in hand-to-hand battles that haunt Cato for days afterwards.
But in a place full of enemies, the most vicious are the Druids of the Dark Moon; brutal men who have captured the wife and children of General Plautius. Macro and Cato must travel deep into enemy territory and recover the hostages. The fate of the Roman army depends on the outcome...
