Praise for The Quest for the Lost Roman Legions

"This is a masterful telling of Tony Clunn's search to discover the Varus battlefield. His well-paced, carefully conceived, and vivid writing style makes for a compelling read from the first page to the last."

- The Lone Star Book Review

"Tony Clunn's The Quest for the Lost Roman Legions is engagingly written and thoroughly 'reader friendly'... A work of impressive originality... [It] is a seminal contribution to the field of Roman history and a wonderfully entertaining and informative read from first page to last."

- Library Bookwatch

"There have been many articles and a few books written on the Varus disaster, but only one--Major Tony Clunn's The Quest for the Lost Roman Legions: Discovering the Varus Battlefield--is written by the man who alone is responsible for identifying the lost site of that major battle. Others merely borrow from Clunn's pathbreaking work. See for yourself."
