    Book on Catiline Conspiracy

    I have just published a book called "The Fall of the Republic" on the Catiline Conspiracy. While it is fictional, it adheres closely to Sallust's account and other historical sources. Here is a summary: In 63 B.C., Catiline—an angry, corrupt politician—conspired with foreign powers and criminal elements to overthrow the Roman Republic. Exploiting those who suffered from inequality, he sought to destroy the republic in the name of the people. In the end, he nearly achieved through violence what he could not attain by inciting the masses with lies. This true story of the near-destruction of a great republic contains poignant lessons for the ages. "The Fall of the Republic" is available on Amazon, in both paperback and Kindle editions. Use the link below or search for my name. I hope that you enjoy it! https://www.amazon.com/Fall-Republic-Scott-Savitz-ebook/dp/B08HZBNYS5/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1600453425&sr=8-1
  2. My new novel, THEOPHILUS: A TALE OF ANCIENT ROME, has just been released on Amazon! I'd love to have some reviews from my fellow Romanophiles here at UNRV, so please go ahead and download it or purchase a copy in paperback. This is the finest tale I have written yet, and I promise you - it's worth every denarius of the cover price! https://www.amazon.com/dp/1632132729/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1491839182&sr=8-1&keywords=theophilus%3A+a+tale+of+ancient+rome
  3. 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.
