Sinopse

The 1st of a 2-book series, ARMINIUS relates the early saga of an actual barbarian in antiquity, later a legionary recruit and Roman citizen, and later still an equestrian knight. He is said to have led a coalition of tribal warriors to victory in a famous battle that annihilated three entire Roman legions, and which subsequently might have affected the makeup of a segment of European society. Certain contemporary historians revere this distant figure from the shadows of European antiquity as a liberating crusader, others as, “The noble savage gone wrong.” This tale of Imperial Rome and ancient Germania centers on the travails, defeats, and victories of a barbarian Roman historians all refer to by the Latinized name Arminius. A culture hero in Germanic lore—possibly even the legendary Wagnerian hero of heroes, Siegfried—he is credited with organizing and consummating the total destruction of three Roman legions in a crucial battle which conceivably changed the course of European history by making Caesar Augustus and succeeding emperors abort the conquest of germania magna, the vast barbarian territory east of the Rhine and north of the Danube, thereby allowing the barbarians generations to avert Roman rule and develop their own language and culture.
