EAGLES IN THE SNOW
by Chris Collingwood
In the freezing depths of a dense forest in Germania, a legion cohort braces itself for the coming storm, not of sleet or snow, but the inevitable surging terrifying roar of the attacking barbarian hordes. Having already previously engaged the enemy and fought them off, the legionnaires catch a breath and reform their shields to deflect the next assault.
Disciplined and highly trained by years of service throughout the Roman Empire, these formidable soldiers formed the backbone of the empires army, backed up by auxiliaries drawn from around the then known world, these men carved out an empire that its people and leaders thought would last for ever.
Chris Collingwood perhaps one this country's greatest portrait and battle artists shows with his inimitable prowess and passion for this period of history, the figure a staunch Roman legionnaire, battle hardened, he exhorts his men to stand firm and not flinch in the face of the coming attack, he knows if the shield wall remains intact the legion will inflict terrible casualties to the barbarians, then with a steady forward pace and thrust of the their short swords the advance would trample over the broken enemy and bring victory once again to Roman arms.
