The Roman war machine is on the move

But behind the Centurions and Legionaries, a vast support network grinds into motion mobilising a new legion towards a hostile river border, its human cogs turning across Roman society: from downtrodden bath slaves, to legionary blacksmiths trying to get through the day, from unscrupulous traders who supply food and materials to corrupt politicians with their own cynical motives.

Danube Legion is the darkly amusing story of what happens behind the scenes – the chaotic, the venal, the incompetent and the corrupt. In amongst it all, and driving most of it, is Lady Lassalia, a ruthless merchant out to ensure her place in Roman society.

Laurence Read is a former playwright, television journalist and businessman who grew up on a diet of Tom Sharpe, Joseph Heller, Saki and Evelyn Waugh. He lives in Hampshire but also spends much of his time in Hungary (where most of Danube Legion takes place).
