A Circlet of Oak Leaves

1973 reprint. Illustrated by Victor Ambrus

Good dustwrapper.  Ex library.

The Corona Civica is the highest award for personal bravery in the Eagles - the Roman Army - so when the young Auxiliaries hear that Aracos the horse breeder won it in his youth they are at first incredulous and then almost embarrassing in their hero-worship.  But there is a mystery behind the story of courage and Aracos is not all that he seems.

A story specially written by the author of The Eagle of the Ninth for younger readers.
