AD 60. Macro and Cato - two battle-scarred heroes of the Roman army - face tribal uprisings and battles to the death with unmatched courage in barbaric Britannia.
The hard-won province of Britannia is a thorn in the side of the Roman Empire, its tribes swift to anger, and relentless in their bloody harassment of the Roman military. Far from being a peaceful northern enclave, Britannia is a seething mass of bitter rebels and unlikely alliances against the common enemy. Corruption amongst greedy officials diverts resources from the locals who need them. For the military, it's a never-ending fight to maintain a fragile peace.
Now it's time to quell the most dangerous enemy tribes. Two of Rome's finest commanders - Prefect Cato and Centurion Macro - are charged with a mission as deadly as any they have faced in their long careers. Can they win the day, or could this be the last battle?
A stunning and unforgettable story of warfare, courage and sacrifice as brave men face an enemy with nothing to lose . . .
