Our next two chats, March 18 & April 1, concern themselves with the Battle in the Teutoburg Forest in 9 CE and its consequences, as investigated by two authors, Peter S. Wells and Adrian Murdoch – the former's book is our main selection, the latter's optional for those who can lay hands on it:
The Battle That Stopped Rome: Emperor Augustus, Arminius, and the Slaughter of the Legions in the Teutoburg Forest
by Peter S. Wells
Excerpts may be found in Google Books, including the Preface.

More to come in due course … stay tuned.
