Summary
  • -- Praise for -- "An intriguingly original alternate history. -- "Clash of Eagles "Alan Smale has done remarkable work with the world-building in Clash of Eagles, "My favorite kind of alternate history: epic, bloody, and hugely imaginative."--John Birmingham, author of Without Warning "Clash of Eagles From the Hardcover edition
  • General Gaius Marcellinus of the Roman Empire is shocked by the fighting skills shown by Native Americans when he commands the invasion of the newly-discovered North American continent
  • "Perfect for fans of military and historical fiction--including novels by such authors as Bernard Cornwell, Naomi Novik, and Harry Turtledove--this stunning work of alternate history imagines a world in which the Roman Empire has not fallen and the North American continent has just been discovered. In the year 1218 AD, transported by Norse longboats, a Roman legion crosses the great ocean, enters an endless wilderness, and faces a cataclysmic clash of warriors, worlds, and gods. Ever hungry for land and gold, the Emperor has sent Praetor Gaius Marcellinus and the 33rd Roman Legion into the newly discovered lands of North America. Marcellinus and his men expect easy victory over the native inhabitants, but on the shores of a vast river the Legion clashes with a unique civilization armed with weapons and strategies no Roman has ever imagined. Forced to watch his vaunted force massacred by a surprisingly tenacious enemy, Marcellinus is spared by his captors and kept alive for his military knowledge. As he recovers and learns more about these proud people, he can't help but be drawn into their society, forming an uneasy friendship with the denizens of the city-state of Cahokia. But threats--both Roman and Native--promise to assail his newfound kin, and Marcellinus will struggle to keep the peace while the rest of the continent surges toward certain conflict"--
  • "In a world where the Roman Empire never fell, a legion under the command of general Gaius Marcellinus invades the newly-discovered North American continent. But Marcellinus and his troops have woefully underestimated the fighting prowess of the Native American inhabitants. When Gaius is caught behind enemy lines and spared, he must reevaluate his allegiances and find a new place in this strange land"--
