Publius Quinctilius Varus, a Roman politician, is summoned
by the emperor, Augustus Caesar, given three legions, and
sent to the Roman frontier east of the Rhine. His mission is
to subdue the barbarous German tribes where others have
failed, and bring their land fully under Romeâ€™s control.
Arminius, a prince of the Cherusci, is playing a deadly
game. He serves in the Roman army, gaining Roman citizenship
and officerâ€™s rank, and learning the arts of war and policy
as practiced by the Romans. What he learns is essential for
the survival of Germany, for he must unite his people
against Rome before they become enslaved by the Empire and
lose their way of life forever.
An epic battle is brewing, and these two men stand on
opposite sides of what will forever be known as the Battle
of the Teutoberg Forestâ€”-a ferocious, bloody clash that will
change the course of history.
