The Roman Legions Recreated In Color Photographs (Europa Militaria)
A different kind of book--but fascinating
Interested in what the Roman military looked like? Kind of an obscure issue, I thought, when I took a look at a review by an Amazon Friend. However, I got hooked on the concept and ordered the book. I'm glad that I did, although it's certainly not something I would have thought of picking up. The purpose of the book is straightforward (Page 4): "This small book is the first attempt to make ...
De Bello Lemures, Or The Roman War Against the Zombies of Armorica
Historic Classics, 2010
I was bored one night, browsing around for something to read, and I stumbled across this book somehow. The price was right, so I zapped it over to my kindle and I was off! Turned out to be thoroughly enjoyable, very well written and paced, as many other reviewers have noted. Was on the shorter side, but as the quick distracting read I was searching for, it served its purpose nobly. Highly ...
A real thrill!
This is not your run of the mill sci-fi book. Nope, it's a real thriller, a real adventure, and a real likelihood that the plot in the book could actually happen. You'll look at cloning through diffeent eyes once you read this commanding story. I'd like to see the heroine, Gillian, in a sequel to this. Go for it!
Falkenberg's Legion (West of Honour and The Mercenary)
Jerry : Stirling S M Pournelle
Damn good stuff
A million years ago, back when I was a poor college student, I decided to forgoe the b-movie of the week and venture into the local Supercrown. Since I had already read Jerry's collaborations with Niven, I thought I'd give this book a chance. I did, and I got a real kick out of it. I've heard others describe Jerry's books as fascist, and his politics to the right of Attila the Hun, but they're ...
Teenagers from the Future: Essays on the Legion of Super-Heroes
Sequart Research & Literacy Organization
A grown-up view of the Legion, history, and pop culture
I've been a Legion fan for 40 years, and I've been in and out of organized Legion fandom for a number of those years, having been a member of Klordny (and having read some of Interlac issues). And yet, I had never heard of any of the people involved with this project, which made me wonder "who ARE these people and what do THEY know about the Legion?". But it turns out that they are just like me - ...
Swords of the Legion
Five Stars is Not Enough
Harry Turtledove has said that his life was shaped and molded by reading "Lest Darkness Fall" by L. Sprague De Camp. To my mind this first series by the master of alternate history is a time travel book based loosely upon that previous classic. Elements of one of Caesar's legions are transported forward in time to the Byzantine Empire. Only it's not the Byzantine Empire, it's the Videssos ...
Stuka Pilot (War and Warrior)
Legion for the Survival of Freedom
Fantastic memoir of a super-hero who fought for the wrong cause
This book is terrific in terms of action as recounted by the most decoated soldier of the Third Reich. After an inglorious beginning, Rudel's star shined on the Eastern Front where he flew 2,530 operational sorties and destroyed a huge amount of enemy material. In this book he analyses many of his tactics, the conditions in Russia, the loss of many of his comrades and his narrow escapes from ...
Legion: A Novel
Legion - The book that has it all
I started reading Legion in the morning and didn't put it down until I was done that night. A great "Good versus Evil" story, with twists & turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I especially enjoyed the strong warrior character being a young high school aged girl with all her innocent idealism still intact. This book will enthrall you no matter what your interests are, it has ...
Chronicles of the Damned
The only problem I have with this book is that you can't put it down. The story is exciting, the werewolves are powerful, and the plot is intense. I hope to see more from R.N. Matos SOON!
Legionnaire: An Englishman in the French Foreign Legion
Sidgwick & Jackson Ltd
No need to add any reviews, just the best british legion book. Plays in the same league like "Par le sang verse'" (Through the blood wich was shed) by Paul Bonnecarrere.
Tomorrow to Be Brave : A Memoir of the Only Woman Ever to Serve in the French Foreign Legion
"legio patria nostra"
You read this book and ask yourself, "Is this true, did this really happen?" But of course it's true. Only an honest person could bare their soul as does Susan Travers, with the brilliantly sensitive prose of co-author Wendy Holden. The story is spell-binding as our heroine bounces from battlefield to boudoir with breathtaking Úlan. So many words fall short- courageous, brave, intrepid, ...
*OP Freak Legion (Werewolf)
White Wolf Publishing
Corruption and Evil, and you can be that to!
Freak Legion is not as gruesome as one might imagine. The material isnt overtly stomach churning(the opening comic is dire but not that bad)but it is still enough to warrant a bit of maturity. A fomori is one of the more tragic aspects of the Wyrm's corruption of humankind; they didnt ask to be made into monsters, and Pentex plays on their helplessness. While a fomori may be very powerful in ...
Getorix: The Eagle and The Bull
Ingalls Publishing Group
Getorix: The Eagle and The Bull
Getorix: The Eagle and the Bull is a story of a young boy's adventures in Rome that is comperable to the Harry Potter novels in that the concept is equally as fascinating. Geary's attention to historical detail paints a vivid image of Rome during a time period that is educational as well as entertaining. Getorix's incessant stubborness in fufilling his promise to his father emphasizes the ...
Hitler: Born at Versailles (Hitler Century, Vol I/Index Enclosed)
Legion for the Survival of Freedom
An unbiased, sprightly treatment of a difficult topic
Leon Degrelle brings to his subject a fresh and sprightly viewpoint. His explanation of the origins of the Great War, or WWI as it later became known, is one of the few I have read that did not put me to sleep. His documentation is complete, his scholarship impeccable. The book is unbiased and carefully researched. His candor is refreshing, and sheds much light on the origins of both world wars, ...
Another classic Sutcliff book
FRONTIER WOLF is the story of Alexios Flavius Aquila, (a descendant of Marcus of EAGLE OF THE NINTH), a young Centurion in the Roman Legions. After a tragic mistake that causes the loss of most of his men, he is sent up North, beyond the Wall, to command the irregular troops, the "Frontier Wolves". But though Alexios makes friends among the Wolves and tribesmen of the Votadini, his history ...
Gentleman and Soldier: A Biography of Wade Hampton III
Edward G. Longacre
Hampton finally gets the respect he is due.
Edward G. Longacre has written many books dealing with subjects relating to the Civil War and has added greatly to the accumulated knowledge of that era. In this biography of General Wade Hampton, the author has again contributed to general Civil War knowledge but he has also accomplished much more. With this, the first full biography of Hampton since 1949, Longacre has rescued the name of this ...
Hidden Soldier: An Irish Legionnaire's Wars from Bosnia to Iraq
Padraig O'Keefe should not alive
But this is the story how he survived and became a professional military contractor working around the world. But seriously, he's taken far too many chances, in a profession that doesn't leave much room for error. Some men are drawn into conflict, O'Keefe was born to it. This is story of a true Irish warrior told in his own words. This is a man who backs down from nothing. First serving ...
Legion's Ladies (Zebra Regency Romance)
Forget the silly "Nightingale" series and read two of the novels that changed my mind about the Romance genre for the better. I'm speaking of Judith Lansdowne's "Legion's Ladies" and "Amelia's Intrigue", the latter you'll have to scour second hand book stores for, I fear. I couldn't put either of books down - not because of the (of course) love story, but because Ms. Lansdowne writes ...
To Honor These Men: A History of the Phillips Georgia Legion Infantry Battalion
Richard M. Coffman
Kurt D. Graham
Mercer University Press
A historical front-line portrait of the men and their unit
This book is a rare insight into not only the strategic actions but a personal portrait of the men of a heretofore major but undocumented Georgia Confederate fighting unit. Most Civil War histories are written from the Union perspective. Not this one. The Phillips Georgia Legion (including the cavalry regiment) was formed shortly after secession and fought in nearly every major engagement on ...
2E REP: The French Foreign Legion Parachutist's Regiment
Histoire and Collections
FRENCH FOREIGN LEGION EXCELLANCE
THIS BOOK IS A DEFINITE FOR THOSE LOOKING FOR GREAT PICTURES AND GREAT INFORMATION ON THE 2 REP OF THE FRENCH FOREIGN LEGION. IT WAS A PLEASURE TO READ, AND I'M SURE THE FRENCH FOREIGN LEGION AND THE ELITE TROOPS OF THE 2 REP WOULD BE PROUD OF THIS BOOK.
