6/8/05 - Film: Gladiator / Gladiator Resources: Books
The Quest For the Lost Roman Legions: Discovering the Varus Battlefield by Tony Clunn is a masterful retelling of Clunn's search to discover the Varus battlefield. His well-paced, carefully conceived, and vivid writing style makes for a compelling read from the first page to the last, as he alternates between his incredible modern quest, and the ancient tale of the Roman occupation of Germany (based upon actual finds from the battlefield) that ultimately ended so tragically in the peat bogs of Kalkriese.
