BASED ON REAL HISTORICAL EVENTS A TIME FOR VENGEANCE AD 9, German frontier: Close to the Rhine, a Roman centurion, Lucius Tullus, prepares to take his soldiers on patrol. On the opposite side of the river, German tribes are resentful of the harsh taxes about to be imposed upon them. Suspicious that there might be unrest, Tullus knows that his men's survival will be determined not just by their training and discipline, but by his leadership. A TIME FOR WAR What neither Tullus nor his commander, Governor Varus, realise is that ranged against them is the charismatic chieftain and trusted ally of Rome, Arminius, who has long been plotting to drive the Romans from the tribal lands east of the Rhine. A TIME TO DIE As Varus' legions prepare to leave their summer encampment, thousands of warriors - directed by Arminius - are massing nearby. Eager to throw off the Roman yoke, the tribesmen prepare a deadly ambush. Only the gods can save the Romans now...

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Masterly storytelling" -- Best Historical Fiction of 2015 * The Times *
"Military historical fiction at its best" * Sunday Express *
"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
"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 *
"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

This is a very exciting book. It was obvious how it would end, history dictates it after all, but the author managed to create heaps of suspense to urge into an ending we already know of. I like book like this, when... More
