Rome: The Eagle of the Twelfth

The latest exciting historical adventure in M. C. Scott’s Rome series. Demalion of Macedon never wanted to be a legionary. An unwilling recruit, he is appalled to be posted to the infamous XIIth legion, notorious for its ill luck. Promoted slowly through the ranks, he does his best to please his superiors, and in doing so, finds that he has come to love his legion, that he will willingly give up his life — and his chance of death — to protect its sacred heart: the Eagle.
