FOUR DAYS IN SEPTEMBER: THE BATTLE OF TEUTOBURG

by Jason R. Abdale 

Teutoburg was the site of one of the most famous battles of ancient history. In late September of 9 AD, three Roman legions fought a prolonged four-day battle with the Germanic barbarians under their leader, Arminius, and were eventually defeated, a crushing blow to both Rome's military and its pride. This new revised edition of Four Days in September thoroughly examines the ancient sources, looks at new facts, analyses the theories of modern scholars, and puts forward hypotheses of its own in order to get the clearest picture of the dynamics of the battle, and its aftermath.
