Ancient Warfare Special issue: The Varian Disaster

Vare, Vare, redde mihi legiones meas! Augustus is supposed to have wandered through the halls of the Imperial palace calling on Varus to give him back the legions destroyed in the 'Teutoburg Forest' in AD 9. This Special is entirely dedicated to that campaign.
