(2000)
(The first book in the Eagles of the Empire series)
A novel by

 
 
It is 42 AD, and Quintus Licinius Cato has just arrived in Germany as a new recruit to the Second Legion, the toughest in the Roman army. If adjusting to the rigours of military life isn't difficult enough for the bookish young man, he also has to contend with the disgust of his colleagues when, because of his imperial connections, he is appointed a rank above them. As second-in-command to Macro, the fearless, battlescarred centurion who leads them, Cato will have more to prove than most in the adventures that lie ahead. Then the men discover that the army's next campaign will take them to a land of unparalleled barbarity - Britain. After the long march west, Cato and Macro undertake a special mission that will thrust them headlong into a conspiracy that threatens to topple the Emperor himself...

Praise for this book

"Under The Eagle surprised me. I was expecting a rip-roaring page-turner -- which it is. What I didn't expect was how often I would slow down when turning the pages to savor the sturdy elegance and incisive wit of Simon Scarrow's writing." - Steven Saylor
