Synopsis:

Testudo is set during the turbulent time of 35 BC in China where a Chinese General Gan and his renegade deputy Chen lead their army through the Taklamakan desert in Northwest China to encircle and destroy their Hun enemies.

During their conquests they encounter a rogue cohort of 145 Roman soldiers, who have escaped and fled east led by an ex-centurion called Varus. Gan instantly recognizes their battle skills, especially a defensive formation called Testudo, or turtle, and decides to entrust these solders to join him.

The story is filled with romance, friendship, deception, great battles, and conquests, as the Roman soldiers are cast into one of the greatest times in China’s history!
