Tribune Of Rome from the Author: Robert Fabbri. ONE MAN: ONE DESTINY THE FIRST INSTALMENT IN THE VESPASIAN SERIES 26 AD: Sixteen-year-old Vespasian leaves his family farm for Rome, his sights set on finding a patron and following his brother into the army. But he discovers a city in turmoil and an Empire on the brink. The aging emperor Tiberius is in seclusion on Capri, leaving Rome in the iron grip of Sejanus, commander of the Praetorian Guard. Sejanus is ruler of the Empire in all but name, but many fear that isn't enough for him. Sejanus' spies are everywhere - careless words at a dinner party can be as dangerous as a barbarian arrow. Vespasian is totally out of his depth, making dangerous enemies (and even more dangerous friends - like the young Caligula) and soon finds himself ensnared in a conspiracy against Tiberius. With the situation in Rome deteriorating, Vespasian flees the city to take up his position as tribune in an unfashionable legion on the Balkan frontier. But even here there is no escaping the politics of Rome. Unblooded and inexperienced, he must lead his men in savage battle with hostile mountain tribes - dangerous enough without renegade Praetorians and Imperial agents trying to kill him too. Somehow, he must survive long enough to uncover the identity of the traitors behind the growing revolt...

Soldier Of Rome 2 Judea from the Author: Bob Base. This is book two in the series Soldier of rome, and it follows our contubernium to Judea at the beginning of the Jewish uprising and Romes response which was led by Vespasian and his son. We follow our men as Praetorians throughout that war from the sea of Galilee to Alexandria in Egypt and back to Rome and the Civil war as Vespasian makes his bid for power. These are not supermen but simple soldiers recruited from the Empire and trained to be part of the Legions killing machine. There are no Heroes,no women and no romance this is the legions at the lowest level and war at its worst as man v man with steel and club I have tried to make it as accurate as i can but the time frame may be compressed slightly so as to speed up the continuity within the story and if there are any glaring inaccuracies use the contact form and i shall revise the book.

Spqr Vii The Tribune S Curse from the Author: John Maddox Roberts. Decius Caecilius Metellus is happy. The weather is beautiful and he is standing for office (literally; standing, in the Roman Forum soliciting votes) with a sure chance of winning. And Caesar's ongoing dreary war is far off in Gaul. Decius is confident that another war looming over Rome, instigated by one Crassus against the Parthians (for no reason but possible worldly gain); will be voted down in the Senate. But the vote does not stop Crassus. On the day he and his troops set out from Rome, the Tribune Ateius Capitus, leader of the opposition, shrieks an ancient and terrible curse over the huge crowd assembled -- a curse that frightens not only the man in the street but the highest Romans. When Ateius is murdered soon after, Decius, solver of past mysteries, has the ugly task of finding the killer. Fascinating details of Rome's mixed attitudes about the power of magic and the practice of rational politics illuminate this latest of Roberts's strong historical mysteries.
