Bloody Immigration

Roman fighting Gauls

If ever there was a story of immigration The Eagles Brood in the Camulod Chronicles series of books I am currently reading describes it in detail. The era was 300-500 A.D. and the story takes place in what is now known as England. In those  years the land belonged to the Roman Empire. As all empires go, the politicians got greedy and the tax money lined their pockets instead of paying their armies to keep law, and order in the territories. Reading about the society of that era is much like reading about our own society today. Our politicians all prosper while our status in the world, and even at home suffers. Masses of people all looking to get a piece of our heavenly land flock across the borders to flee oppression in their native lands.

One huge difference between 400 A.D. and 2018 A.D. is that immigrants aren’t being led by egomaniacal leaders who do not want land alone, but power as well. A second difference is in the way immigrants fought wars. Land was won by the group that could slay the weaker one. Literally, battles ended when there were no more soldiers of the other side to kill. Bodies piled up every where, wounded were triaged into the savable and those to be put out of their misery. WOW!

The author, Jack Whyte has not let me down yet, and the story continues for another four volumes. His characters are strong and human. Some are pure evil and desperate for control. The family blood line is what drives his narrative, and at this point he is in the fourth generation.

The historical period is fascinating, and Jack Whyte is a master historian of the time.  His dialog, description of living conditions, and customs makes the reader become one of the characters.
