In 9 CE, Varus, the Roman governor of Germania, sent the 17th, 18th and 19th legions to quell a native rebellion. The Romans marched into a trap set by the Germans’ leader, Arminius: the three legions were engaged in a battle in Teutoburg Forest that cost the lives of 10,000 legionaries and dealt a blow to Rome’s imperial ambitions in Germania. Jason Abdale tells the full story of the four-day-long battle, the events that preceded it and its legacy. Second edition.
