Marius’ Mules IV:
Conspiracy of Eagles
by S. J. A. Turney
“Marius’ Mules: nickname acquired by the legions after the general Marius made it standard practice for the soldier to carry all of his kit about his person.”
For my beautiful Callie Sophia, born December 2011, whose haranguing melts my brain, but whose smile melts my heart.
I would like to thank those people instrumental in bringing Marius' Mules 4 to fruition and making it the success it has been, and those who have contributed to the production of the Second Edition, in particular Leni, Jules, Barry, Robin, Alex, Kate, Alun, Nick, two Daves, a Garry and a Paul. Also a special thanks to Ben Kane and Anthony Riches, who have greatly encouraged me towards the improvements in this edition.
