I further say that Carthage must be destroyed!
Honestly, too much direct plagiarising of Plutarch and the the description does not fit the Roman legion. Otherwise I liked it of sorts.
"Per Balista ad Astra!" - motto of the Roman Artillery corps.
Thanks lovely, i'll think i'll pre-order that!

Macedon's demise. Grrr.
"What a wrestling ground we are leaving, my friends, for the Carthaginians and the Romans." - Pyrrhus of Epirus upon leaving the shores of Sicily, and foreshadowing the Punic Wars.
Can't wait to play as Carthage and to fight against them.
"When the strong have fallen...we must call in the weak...because now...they are the strong"
Me..when...just now...at that one time...at that one place....upside down...
Just read it. It's well written, I think I will pick it up at some point.
Goldfinger said, 'Mr Bond, they have a saying in Chicago: "Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, the third time it's enemy action."
Three cheers for Atepa, who sent me the text of this (I cannot open the link due to my poor internet connection offshore, it kept locking up).

One of the things we won't do, we won't make anything up ... We've got more time, we've got all of the research we did last time around, plus plenty of time to do more.... we're not going to make anything up this time around. – Mike Simpson
Man that author is really bad at writing historically correct battles, why make **** up when history is much more entertaining. Atleast put some research into the roman/latin/italian psychology before you sprout nonsense.
jesus christ this author is horrible, he gives a civic crown for nothing, its the 2nd highest honor a soldier of rome can get, and you only get it by personally saving a cohort from defeat.
Lucky im a total war fan, but seriously if it wasnt for the games, actually supporting that inane dribble of a book would make me want to never play again. Lucky for everyone though the game will be great. Hell it cant be any worse that that nonsense.
