Synopsis
The year is 406. A single Roman legion stands guard on the Rhine. Only these few men, a thin stretch of river and the determination of their general, Maximus, hold the frontier for Rome against the barbarian hordes. Maximus is urged to proclaim himself emperor, but he stands by his concept of duty and holds the frontier for longer than seems possible. Then chance plays a cruel trick ...First published in 1970, EAGLE IN THE SNOW is a taut, gripping story of the fall of the Roman Empire in microcosm, as seen through the eyes of Maximus. 'It has the feel of a crumbling frontier world, and a Roman world at that...A triumph.' John Terraine 'This is a magnificent panorama of a splintering civilization, elegaic and deeply moving, its reissue is long overdue.' GOOD BOOK GUIDE 'Wallace Breem belongs to that very short list of writers whose work elevates historical fiction beyond the genre and sets it alongside the best writing of any kind, in any period.' Steven Pressfield
