  1. I'm very pleased to announced publication of my latest book. The Legio XVII series, Roman Legion at War, Battle of the Danube, and just published Battle of Zama are historical fiction novels that take place during Rome’s Second Punic War with Carthage (218 - 202 BC). The fictional exploits of Legio XVII are impacted by the Punic War and its military operations are conducted in support of the overall war effort, but do not intrude into or alter actual historical events. Together, the three books present a complete summary of that ancient War. It’s available at Amazon, B&N, Apple, Smashwords, etc. Here’s the link to Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Legio-XVII-Battle-Thomas-Timmes-ebook/dp/B00ZDZONZ0/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1434061497&sr=1-1&keywords=legio+XVII%3A+Battle+of+Zama Hope you enjoy it as much as I did writing it! Legio XVII: Battle of Zama - by Thomas A. Timmes
  2. UPDATE by UNRV.com: Win a free download of Legio XVII: Roman Legion at War, comment or asks the author a question below and stand a chance to download it for free Legio XVII: Roman Legion at War ############################################################## The purpose of this post is to tell you about an historical fiction ebook I just published, "LegioXVII: Roman Legion at War" and why I think you may be interested in reading it. First, I want to mention that this is my first post here, but I have been a fan of UNRV for the last four years. I used it extensively during my research. Why the book? I wanted to create an image of Leg XVII beside that of Teutoburg Forest! I first heard about 9 AD way back in 1960 and found it unsettling. How did this disaster happen? Fifty years later, I think we all pretty well know how it happened: poor Roman leadership and a very clever adversary. Leg XVII only existed for 50 years. It was never reconstituted after 9 AD. My book gives the Legion a history that takes place during the 2nd Punic War, but is not involved with Hannibal. Another reason I wrote the book is because I felt I had something unique to add. Now I love ancient battles as much as anyone, but, in addition to battle scenes, I wanted to describe the intense planning that underlies a successful outcome. To do this, I drew on my 28 year active duty career in the U.S. Army where I served at the platoon, company, battalion, and brigade level. I was also in the Pentagon for 24 years as a staff officer and civilian on the Army Staff, the Joint Staff, and Office of the Secretary of Defense. Operational and tactical level planning has been my life. In the book, I tried to be historically accurate concerning the 2nd Punic war and with my characters. Any errors are unintentional. Let me know what you think! I'd appreciate your perspective.
