Legionary: Viper of the North
My latest book, Legionary: Viper of the North, pivots around the Gothic crossings of the Danube River in late 376 AD. This was a tumultuous event that culminated in the Gothic Wars and the near capitulation of the Eastern Roman Empire. But, I hear you ask, what caused the previously disparate Gothic tribes to unite in such a fashion and burst through the imperial borders?

Well, C.W. Gortner was kind enough to let me explore the history of this event on his blog recently. Read all about it here:
