NERO'S KILLING MACHINE The True Story of Rome's Remarkable 14th Legion

by | Read by Robert Fass

History • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

In a clear, strong voice, Robert Fass narrates this history of the ill-fated Roman 14th Gemina Martia Victrix Legion, from the campaigns under Julius Caesar in 54 B.C. Britain, to their campaigns in Gaul and North Africa, to its destruction in the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest under Germanicus, then later its reconstruction. Filled with minute details, this military history describes the soldiers, marching and camp conditions, food, weapons, and military tactics. Fass's fluent performance is polished and steady as he delivers long phrases and paragraphs in a single breath. Sometimes his deep breaths are audible and distracting. The history slowly unfolds, spending its first 10 chapters focused on Julius Caesar before moving on to other military commanders.
