Writing Legionary: Land of the Sacred Fire would have been a whole lot tougher without the excellent research material provided by Dr. Kaveh Farrokh, a leading Iranian history specialist. His works, particularly the two below, really helped paint a vivid picture of Sassanid Persia for me, and allowed me to visualise the journey of Pavo and the XI Claudia into the eastern sands.
