“Varus, give me back my Legions!”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Michaela S.
Must admit that I read the book in the first place because the author is a former colleague, and as I admire and support any attempt to do something completely else beside one’s every day work routine, I just had to check out on Tom actually publishing a book! And to my big surprise, the story deals with the historical events in the Teutoburg Forest, which is only a few steps away from where I was raised in Germany – countless times I have passed in front of the Hermann monument in Detmold (that actually celebrated its 140th anniversary last week) and everyone in the region knows the story of the battle against the Roman Empire represented by Varus, so the story itself was not new to me and there was no surprise about what would happen, but this did not take away the pleasure of reading the book, because I really enjoyed how the story developed via the point of view of the fictional main character. I strongly recommend the book to anyone who enjoys historical novels! You won’t be disappointed.
