Ranks of Bronze

by David Drake
Release date: 1986
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fictionmilitary science fiction

The aliens were looking for a few good fighters, warriors who could be brave without blasters, and content with shields of bronze...

What they got were Romans...


Gaius Vibulenas: From a raw kid, he became an accomplished soldier – and a leader of men.

Quartilla: She was everything a man could want – you would never guess she wasn't human.

Pompilius Niger: He learned young that the worst dangers a soldier faces come from those who give him his orders.

Clodius Afer: A veteran, he didn't ask questions – until his alien masters forced the answers on him.

The aliens knew that in these primitives they possessed the finest low-tech soldiers in the galaxy. What they did not understand was the madness of enslaving a Roman legion and leaving them with swords in their hands.
