The date is AD 15. The German chieftain Arminius has been defeated, one of the lost Roman eagles recovered and thousands of German tribesmen slain. Yet these successes aren't nearly enough for senior centurion Lucius Tullus. Not until Arminius is dead, his old legion's eagle found and the enemy tribes completely vanquished will he rest.
But Arminius - devious, fearless - is burning for revenge of his own. Charismatic as ever, he raises another large tribal army, which will carry the Romans the length and breadth of the land. Soon Tullus finds himself in a cauldron of bloodshed, treachery and danger. His mission to retrieve his legion's eagle will be his most perilous yet....

Another great book from Ben, lots of accurate and interesting detail, a sterling storyline and lovable characters means you really are immersed in the Roman conquests of Germanica. A Hugh recommend to everyone and I cannot wait for the next two.
The story was gritty and the descriptions of the battles are amazingly detailed
Tubero's Tent I was trying not to laugh out loud while lying in bed and waking the wife.
The personalities of the characters were really brought to life but David.
I wish I had the time to listen to the whole book at once. I never wanted to turn it off.
Another great book by Ben and I hope there is another trilogy in the works for next year. No pressure ben but I'm hooked on your writing, from Hanno to Tullus the adventures have been memorable.
Ben Kane completes his Eagles series with an excellent and historically accurate story
i do sympathise with the Germans in this as the Invaded people.
Do listen to the series.
This was a great all round book never boring and you just can't go wrong with Ben Kane
