Description - Nero's Killing Machine by Stephen Dando-Collins

The 14th Gemina Martia Victrix Legion was the most celebrated unit of the early Roman Empire--a force that had been wiped out under Julius Caesar, reformed, and almost wiped out again. After participating in the a.d. 43 invasion of Britain, the 14th Legion achieved its greatest glory when it put down the famous rebellion of the Britons under Boudicca. Numbering less than 10,000 men, the disciplined Roman killing machine defeated 230,000 rampaging rebels, slaughtering 80,000 with only 400 Roman losses--an accomplishment that led the emperor Nero to honor the legion with the title "Conqueror of Britain." In this gripping book, second in the author's definitive histories of the legions of ancient Rome, Stephen Dando--Collins brings the 14th Legion to life, offering military history aficionados a unique soldier's--eye view of their tactics, campaigns, and battles.
