MEDIA REVIEWS
"Military historical fiction at its best" * Sunday Express *
"Masterfully done" * The Times *
"You can bank on Kane to deliver an accurate version of events fictionalised with verve and served up with a large dose of bloody violence." * Sunday Sport *
"Ben Kane has put himself at the top of the historical fiction writing tree, and with Eagles of War he has begun a new trilogy which will leave his fans eager for more" * Western Mail *
"Gripping, brutal and brilliant" -- Giles Kristian
"Ben Kane's ability to illustrate the major turning points in Roman history at the level where the blood gets shed is second to none, and in Eagles at War his ability to put believable characters into the heart of the battle is stronger than ever." -- Tony Riches
"Ben Kane lifts the genre into a space all his own where honour and duty, love and hate, legions and tribes clash in spectacular, bloody, heart-breaking glory... I loved this book. It dragged me in on the first page, held me spellbound to the end and I can't wait for the next one. More!" -- Manda Scott
