That's Rosemary Sutcliff's book. It's a children's book so it should suit you right down to the ground :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Seriously though, it's amazing what's labelled as a children's book. For instance, all of Peter Connelly's books are classed as such :roll: :roll: :roll:

I thought that the disappearance of the IXth was disputed as to where exactly it happened? i.e. Germany Vs Scotland Vs disbanded due to mutiny...
Of course this is based on web search stuff

Salvete Omnes!

Pullo is of course correct in his use of VIIII. The use of IX is much later. As for the ninth, well they were a very unfortunate legion. I think you'll find Syria is probably where they disappeared.
