"Drusus the Elder, illuminated at last in this the first biography of an important personality from the beginnings of Rome's empire and for which Lindsay is to be congratulated."Graham Sumner, co-author Arms and Armour of the Imperial Roman SoldierNero Claudius Drusus Germanicus (Drusus the Elder) was one of the most extraordinary figures of Caesar Augustus' family and the original conqueror of Germania Magna. Yet for too long his life and exploits have been consigned to footnotes in the annals of the Roman Empire. In fact, Drusus the Elder is the most important Roman who has not been written about - until now in EAGER FOR GLORY.Drusus was a stepson of Augustus, the first Roman emperor, through his marriage to Livia. As a military commander he led daring campaigns by sea and land that pushed the northern frontiers of Rome's empire to the Elbe River. He oversaw one of the largest developments of military infrastructure of the age. He married Marc Antony's daughter, Antonia, and fathered Germanicus, the Empire's most popular general, and the future emperor Claudius. He died when he was only 29 and was revered in death.Drawing on ancient texts, evidence from inscriptions and coins, the latest findings in archaeology from Austria, Germany and The Netherlands, as well as astronomy and medical science, Lindsay Powell has produced a highly entertaining and readable, but definitive account of this great Roman.
