+1 recommendation on "Eagle in the Snow". Excellent book well worth the read, especially if you are snowed in!

I got lost in a bit of a google black-hole earlier. I have Stephen Dando-Collins Legions of Rome, which posits that the 20th was destroyed in Gaul during the 406 AD Invasion across the Rhine that's covered in Eagle in the Snow.
