Warrior of Rome I: Fire in the East

Harry Sidebottom

Publisher:Penguin Books Ltd

“Warrior of Rome I: Fire in the East” is Harry Sidebottom's historical debut. The year is AD 255 - the Roman Imperium is stretched to breaking point, its authority and might challenged along every border. The greatest threat lies in Persia to the east, where the massing forces of the Sassanid Empire loom with fiery menace. There the isolated Roman citadel of Arete awaits inevitable invasion. One man is sent to marshal the defences and shore up crumbling walls. A man whose name itself means war: a man called Ballista. Alone, Ballista is called to muster the forces and the courage to stand first and to stand hard against the greatest enemy ever to confront the Imperium. This is part one of “Warrior of Rome”: an epic of empire, of heroes, of treachery, of courage, and most of all, a story of brutal bloody warfare. Dr Harry Sidebottom is a leading authority on ancient warfare - he applies his knowledge with a spectacular flair for sheer explosive action and knuckle-whitening drama. Fans of Bernard Cornwell will love Sidebottom's recreation of the ancient world. Praise for Harry Sidebottom: “Sidebottom's prose blazes with searing scholarship”. (“The Times”).“The best sort of red-blooded historical fiction”. (Andrew Taylor, author of “The American Boy”). Dr. Harry Sidebottom is Fellow of St Benets Hall, and Lecturer at Lincoln College, Oxford - where he specializes in ancient warfare and classical art.
