I am trying to find a book written about the Ninth or Lost Roman Legion.
I don't know the title or author but here is the storyline. Maybe
someone will recognize it.
The Ninth legion marched north from York to combat the Picts/Scots who
were crossing the Wall. The cast of characters include a Roman soldier,
his "British" girlfriend" and his best friend, a Brit serving in the
The novel was written by a young female American author and published in
the late 1960s/early 70s. It is a novel but may have been her
hypothesis as to what happened to the Ninth Legion. All mention of the
9th has been removed from Roman records.
Possible titles are "The Lost Legion", "The Lost Ninth Legion" and
"Legion in the Mist".
My parents read this novel about 30 years ago and still talk about it.
I am trying to trace it and give it to them as an anniversary present.
Any information is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
