    Great military historical fiction about the birth of the 10th Legion and the birth of general Gaius Julius Caesar.

    HAIL CAESAR!I found myself lost in this story of a young man living in olden Rome and deciding to join the the Roman Legions and learning about himself and what he could be. Family life seemed markedly the same as today without the technology. Years move on but people do the same stupid stuff as they do today. I compare the Legionnaires to our Wounded Warriors of today. I look forward to the rest of the series.

    A fantastic book, one that I'm excited and happy to see is just the beginning of an already well-established series.Peake completely captures the essence of the soldier in his writing - particularly the essence of a NCO in what is arguably one of the toughest Units in recorded history. I could have told you that Peake was a troop even before I read his biography simply by how well he understands the mindset of the soldier (Miles).I've read a lot about Rome and Caesar's exploits in particular, but never from this angle. If you like history, start reading this book. If you have a military background, you will LOVE this book.Well-written buddy. I'm immediately going to start on book 2!

    Written from a retired Roman Officer about the forming of the 10th Legion ( which became Caesar's most Famous Legion). Very accurate in historical perspective and really interesting about the true feelings and experts experiences of new Roman soldiers in training. In this Firsti volume, it told about how Titus and his best friend, Vibius...signing up for their dream, to one day become Roman Officers. It have a good amount of their childhood spent together, the trials of family life and them finding their way into the Roman Army. A very good book, and I look forward to the whole series. Written by a former Marine.

    The beginning of the story of Titus Pullus, who is born in the Roman province of Further Spain and dreams of joining the Legions. A soldier's tale and a ground-level view of a Roman campaing against the "barbarian" tribes of Northern Portugal and Galicia. Filled with action but also human emotion. Also, funny. We get a glimpse of Caesar, but mostly is about Titus and his companions. Eager to continue with the series.

    A soldiers viewMarching With Caesar starts following(reviewing) a young mans life. It starts with the early years and includes things like life in the Roman Empire, from a young boys perspective. It follows the young man as he joins the newly formed 10th Legion. It shows how Julius Caesar was seen from the point of view of some of the Legions. It also follows the 10th Legion prior to Julius Caesar's crossing of the Rubicon.

    I enjoyed this book but I can understand that this might not be for everyone. If you are looking for a complete examination of Caesar's campaign in Gaul then this isn't the book for you. It's written from an ordinary soldiers pov so the tactics/strategies of "why"are left out.The book is well researched and written and moves along at a good pace. Some of the ancillary characters are not as fleshed out as maybe they could be but I didn't find it distracting.

    Maybe the best low cost book I've ever read on Kindle. I'm not quite sure how much the description of training to become a Legionnaire is historically accurate and how much it comes from the author's Marine Core training. Maybe they really are that similar. That said, highly recommended. It really held my attention throughout the book.

    I very much enjoyed this book. I would have liked a little more detail and character development, both of the main characters and of the enemy. It was more event driven than character driven. But still very interesting, especially if you like stories about Rome.
