Les Aigles de Rome - Livre VI
Rome, in the year 1 B.C.
Ermanamer is a young German[ taken prisoner by the Roman army and handed over to Titus for military training. Ermanamer will share this education with Marcus, Titus' son.
Rivals at the outset, the two boys will learn to respect each other, finally sealing their friendship with the blood of a bear. But can their friendship last?
Ermanamer and Marcus come from two different worlds. For Ermanamer, it is Germanic culture that continues to guide him. The defeat of his people by Rome is an ever-present memory that his new name and Roman citizenship, gifts from the Emperor, can never erase.
For Marcus, the son of a soldier of the Empire, it is the image of Rome -- the great conqueror and the great civilizer -- that rules his life.
Will they fight side by side for Rome... or one against the other?
In the adventures of Ermanamer and Marcus, Marini puts his talent to work in the service of an original and exciting theme: Rome's integration of its conquered peoples into its Empire.
