  1. 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.
