About this deal

Algo el obispo y el curator, pero poco más (creo que esta opinión es minoritaria, pero ahí queda) Además, hay muchos, muchos, muchos, y te pierdes en ocasiones. Personajes : creo que alguien los ensalza en sus críticas pero a mí sólo me han parecido reales dos : Máximo y Quito. Se fondant sur la vie bien réelle d’Henry Tandey, il a écrit une fiction qui dépasse sa propre expérience dans laquelle il explore la nature du courage et le dilemme devant lequel chacun d’entre nous nous trouvons lorsque l’on découvre qu’une de nos actions, qui nous paraissait juste, se révèle être la pire que nous ayons jamais commise. I decided I had to do something and told them the kind of story I used to tell my kids – it was like a soap opera, and they focused on it. Pero he aquí que ya, por fin llega a su destino, a la alta Germania, para defender las fronteras de un imperio en decadencia y ay madre desde ese momento, la historia no para de ir cuesta arriba mejorando y llegando a las batallas finales que son memorables.

Slightly Foxed introduces its readers to books that are no longer new and fashionable but have lasting appeal. I also think we could have had a brief description of the state of the empire and the Roman army at the time before we started for those not up to speed on this part of history.

For me, the greater part of writing is daydreaming, dreaming the dream of my story until it hatches out – the writing down of it I always find hard.

Autorul se foloseste de povestea lui Henry Tandey, celebrul "soldat care nu l-a impuscat pe Hitler" pentru a construi o poveste despre curaj, modestie, dar si despre cruda realitate a razboiului. La angustia de la defensa en inferioridad de condiciones, el sufrimiento, el orgullo, el valor o la cobardía, las lealtades y las traiciones, las penalidades y los sentimientos de los personajes, de la legión XX en su conjunto …eso es lo que más vale, ahí se lleva las cinco estrellas y eso es lo que hace a este libro algo digno de ser leído. Curtido en las duras batallas ante el Muro de Adriano, Máximo comanda la legión encargada de defender la peligrosa frontera del Rin. Set in the 4th and 5th centuries, the time of Honorius, Stilicho, and Galla Placidia, the story is told in the first person in flashback by the dour Roman General Maximus, to a group of tribesmen in Segontium (modern-day Caernarfon, Wales). After the crossing of the Rhine by a mixed group of Barbarians that included Vandals, Alans, and Suebi, Maximus gains an unlikely ally in Goar, who led a band of Alans into Gaul and then quickly joined the Romans.

Il entre à la Sandhurst Military Academy à dix-huit ans, puis abandonne l'armée et deviens professeur. But with the title comes a caveat: Maximus needs to muster and command a single legion to defend the perilous Rhine frontier. My only caveat is that there is a great deal of military history in this book, which some readers may find slightly tedious. Te mete en la ambientación y el ritmo es bueno pero no llega al enganche que nos mete el autor español ese que he dicho antes. Sitting in the darkness, a stranger in their cabin offers to tell the true story of a highly decorated World War I soldier, who had a chance to kill a young Adolf Hitler - but let him go.So much for the glory of Rome, this is a book of defeat and retreat in fast failing empire, but also of honour and defiance in the face of overwhelming odds. He served the organisation in a number of senior capacities from 1969 until his death in 1990, when the Association and the Inner Temple jointly set up a Memorial Award in his honour.

The stranger tells how his friend became the most decorated soldier in World War I and how one decision that he made during that war may have changed the course of history.

One hint here, however, we know that auto-mutilation by civilians to avoid military service (cutting of the right-hand thumb, which made it impossible to propoerly hold a lance or a javelin) did happen, especially in the Western part of the Empire. the picture of decay and of moral decadence among the civilian elites (including the Christians) is easy to believe because it "feels" real, regardless of whether it was in fact true or not.
