The year is AD255 - the Roman imperium is stretched to breaking point, its authority and might challenged throughout the territories and along every border. The most potent threat lurks far to the east in Persia, where the massing forces of the Sassanid Empire loom with fiery menace. There lies the far-flung and isolated citadel of Arete, facing out across the wasteland, awaiting the inevitable invasion. One man is sent to marshal the defences of this lonely city - one man to shore up the crumbling walls of this once indomitable symbol of Roman power - 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.

'WAR IS HELL . . . ' The year is AD 255 - the Roman Imperium is stretched to breaking point; its authority and might challenged along every border.

One man is sent to marshal the defences and shore up the 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.

This is the only fully illustrated military life of the Emperor Publius Licinius Egnatius Gallienus (253-268). Considered the most blatantly military man of all of the soldier emperors of the third century, Gallienus is the emperor in Harry Sidebottom’s best-selling Warrior of Rome novels. Gallienus faced more simultaneous usurpations and foreign invasions than any other emperor, but somehow he managed to survive. Dr. Ilkka Syvanne explains how this was possible. It was largely thanks to the untiring efforts of Gallienus that the Roman Empire survived for another 1,200 years. Gallienus was a notorious libertarian, womanizer, and cross-dresser, but he was also a fearless warrior, duellist and general all at the same time. This monograph explains why he was loved by the soldiers,yet so intensely hated by some officers that they killed him in a conspiracy. The year 2018 is the 1,800th anniversary of Gallienus’ date of birth and the 1,750th anniversary of his date of death. The Reign of Gallienus celebrates the life and times of this great man.

Download Myth, Ritual, and the Warrior in Roman and Indo-European Antiquity Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

This book examines the figure of the returning warrior as depicted in the myths of several ancient and medieval Indo-European cultures. In these cultures, the returning warrior was often portrayed as a figure rendered dysfunctionally destructive or isolationist by the horrors of combat. This mythic portrayal of the returned warrior is consistent with modern studies of similar behavior among soldiers returning from war. Roger Woodard's research identifies a common origin of these myths in the ancestral proto-Indo-European culture, in which rites were enacted to enable warriors to reintegrate themselves as functional members of society. He also compares the Italic, Indo-Iranian, and Celtic mythic traditions surrounding the warrior, paying particular attention to Roman myth and ritual, notably to the etiologies and rites of the July festivals of the Poplifugia and Nonae Caprotinae, and to the October rites of the Sororium Tigillum.

From THE SUNDAY TIMES bestselling author Manda Scott, this is the third magnificent instalment of the epic retelling of the life of Britain's great warrior queen. "The richness of colour and vibrancy of style have become the hallmarks of Scott's ambitious series." --YORKSHIRE EVENING POST "Scott has teased a few facts from the ancient record to create an absorbing story from history and myth." -- Publishers Weekly "Scott can write about spear-throwing and sword cuts as though she had experienced them herself" - THE TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT "It arouses passion and takes the reader straight into the ancient world of Britain under Roman rule. An exciting read for those who just want a bit of shock and awe in their lives..." -- ***** Reader review "This was a "one-more-chapter" type of book so that for several nights I only put aside the book when I could no longer focus on the page and almost dropped-off with the book open in front of me." -- ***** Reader review "Amazing writing, spell-binding, transporting..." -- ***** Reader review ********************* BRITAIN HAS PRODUCED MANY FIERCE, NOBLE WARRIORS DOWN THE AGES WHO HAVE FOUGHT TO KEEP BRITAIN FREE, BUT THERE WAS ONE FORMIDABLE LADY IN HISTORY WHOSE NAME WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN... AD 57: much of Britannia has been under Roman occupation for over ten years, where the tribes pay costly tithes to the Emperor in return for the right to continue living on their own lands. On the sacred isle of Mona, the Boudica or Bringer of Victory as Breaca has long been hailed, now knows for certain that her lover, Caradoc - betrayed, captured and kept hostage in Rome - will never return to her. She decides to leave Mona and to take the fight to the Eceni heartland where it is needed most. But the once proud Eceni are a downtrodden and defeated people who are forbidden to worship their old gods, and now scrape a living from the once fertile land. Across the sea in Hibernia, Breaca's half-brother Bán, struggles to make peace with his fractured past. Soon, provoked by Roman aggression, he will sail to Britain and, united with his sister, he and Breaca will face down the might of Rome in the bloodiest revolt the western world has ever known. Boudica's story continues in Boudica: Dreaming the Serpent Spear. Have you read Boudica: Dreaming the Eagle and Boudica: Dreaming the Bull, the first two instalments of the Boudica story?

When the U.S. Army went to war in South Vietnam in 1965, the general consensus was that counterinsurgency was an infantryman’s war; if there were any role at all for armored forces, it would be strictly to support the infantry. However, from the time the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment arrived in country in September 1966, troopers of the Blackhorse Regiment demonstrated the fallacy of this assumption. By the time of Tet '68, the Army’s leadership began to understand that the Regiment’s mobility, firepower, flexibility, and leadership made a difference on the battlefield well beyond its numbers. Over the course of the 11th Cavalry’s five-and-a-half years in combat in South Vietnam and Cambodia, over 25,000 young men served in the Regiment. Their stories—and those of their families—represent the Vietnam generation in graphic, sometimes humorous, often heart-wrenching detail. Collected by the author through hundreds of in-person, telephone, and electronic interviews over a period of 25-plus years, these “war stories” provide context for the companion volume, The Blackhorse in Vietnam. Amongst the stories of the Blackhorse troopers and their families are the tales of the wide variety of animals they encountered during their time in combat, as well as the variable landscape, from jungle to rice paddies, and weather. Blackhorse Tales concludes with a look at how the troopers dealt with their combat experiences since returning from Vietnam. Between the chapters are combat narratives, one from each year of the Regiment’s five-and-a-half years in Southeast Asia. These combat vignettes begin on 2 December 1966, when a small column of 1st Squadron vehicles and troopers was ambushed on Highway 1 and emerged victorious despite being outnumbered. They go on to describe the one-of-a-kind crossing of the Dong Nai River on 25 April 1968, as the Blackhorse Regiment rode to the rescue during Mini-Tet 1968, and the 2nd Squadron's fight to clear the Boi Loi Woods in late April 1971.
