B102 - Arminius the Liberator / By Ernst Schomer

 Two thousand years ago, the mighty Roman Empire - just like many Western democracies of today - was marked by decline and corruption. The once noble and altruistic attitude of the civis romanus had given way to the coarsest and most selfish mores. The middle class had almost totally vanished. An oligarchy making a show of wealth and brutality had seized control.  This is the story of a young Germanic prince trained to serve the Roman empire, who unites the tribes of Germania in A.D. 9 to defeat three Roman legions, thereby changing the course of history. Large format quality paperback, 327 pp.  Translated from German by James Damon.  MILLENNIUM EDITION!
