About the Book

“An evil empire is determined to enslave them and take their land. I feel we have an obligation to stand and fight.” --Sergeant Matt Taylor, United States Army Teutoburg Forest, 2009 The Terrorist Assault Team’s orders were clear. They were to storm the house, capture the terrorists, free the hostages and contain the bomb. None of the twenty-six member, highly trained TAT team was prepared for what would take place on that hot August night. Through a bizarre chain of events, these GI’s lives would change forever. They would be forced to choose between a new life or fight for freedom in a way they never imagined. “Varus, Varus give me back my legions.” --Caesar Augustus, 9AD Teutoburg Forest, 9 AD One of the greatest battles of all time took place in Teutoburg Forest in 9AD. When it was over, more than twenty thousand seasoned Roman Soldiers were dead. How could a poorly armed, undisciplined group of Germanic warriors defeat this mighty foe? What happened to Varus, the general of the Roman army and his famous soldiers is revealed in this thrilling plot. This is the unknown story of how the battle is fought and how it became a turning point in history. Terror in Teutoburg Forest Relive the battle that helped shape the world, as we know it today. This gripping account of how the onslaught occurred is skillfully captured in this exciting historic novel, Terror in Teutoburg Forest, related by author John L. Rothdiener.
