The newly elected Emperor needed a successful military operation to survive. Britain was the chosen target. When all was ready, the famed Roman army faltered and refused to embark. The official reason was that the tough, professional citizen-soldiers feared to cross the Ocean even though armies under Julius Caesar had twice done so before. This book offers a different reason. The failure of male-dominated Roman planning to take into account the family concerns of ordinary soldiers almost broke the back of the Imperial project. Despite rigorous army discipline, long-service legionaries refused to leave their unofficial families alone on the Continent when they left for Britain for ever. The reader will be held spellbound by this re-enactment of Roman history, seeing how Aurelius Victorinus of the Urban Cohorts, the embryonic police service of the City, became one of the instruments of the survival of the Emperor and the launching of the Invasion across the Ocean.

Great Australian Horse Stories brings to life the exploits—funny, poignant and sometimes dramatic—of horses from all over the nation, including outback legends, loyal carthorses, spectacular high jumpers, and trusty stock horses. Among them are animals that have defied the odds to win—or simply to live. Just as special are the people who make horses their lives: drovers and dressage riders, bush brumby runners, the famous horse handlers on film sets, and rags-to-riches metropolitan trainers. These are riders who have persevered through accident and adversity to stay in the saddle. From the traditions of old-timers to new methods that challenge the way we think about horses, these stories capture the essence of that special bond between humans and horses. They will resonate with horse-lovers and anyone who enjoys a great Australian yarn.
