Default Eagle series by Simon Scarrow

Simon Scarrow studied history, specialising in the Roman occupation of Britain before taking a job guiding tours around archeological sites. His books are similar to the style of the Italian author Valero Massimo Manfredi where a fictitious story is set against real events, with the feel that it could be true, even though it is fiction. This really brings a real insight of the day to day running of Roman Legions in the field, and a believable realism to the books.

The Eagle book stories are adventure stories really, with some gritty humour and a dash of history thrown in. Straight forward with not too many twists and plenty of action.
