The author of The Gabinian Affair and The Helvetian Affair continues the fictional memoir of a Roman soldier who served in Julius Caesar's legion. In the latest installment in the Gaius Marius Chronicle series, Ray Gleason's protagonist Gaius Marius Insubrecus, a retired Roman soldier, is back with more of his tale to tell. Having served under Caesar during his wars in Gaul, Insubrecus got an inside look at the harsh realities of war at a young age, and these novels tell his tale. The Swabian Affair: Book III of the Gaius Marius Chronicle recreates the world of the late Roman Republic to continue the story of Gaius Marius Insubrecus, a young man caught between two worlds, that of Rome and that of Celtic Gaul, as he tries to navigate through war, treachery and intrigue of Caesar's campaign against Ariovistus and the Swabians. Fleeing assassins sent after him by the Romans, Insubrecus gets caught up within the Roman army. Trying desperately to blend in and avoid those vying for his life, he only gets further plunged into danger, war, and ultimately despair.
