Blending commentary from noted historians with footage created using the Total War: ROME II engine, this documentary short takes a close look at one of the most devastating defeats the Roman Empire ever faced.

The Battle of the Teutoburg Forest saw three full legions of Rome utterly destroyed; it shook the empire to its very foundations, and offered Rome a stark reminder of the perils of an overstretched empire.

Featuring Bettany Hughes, Mike Loades, Lynette Nusbacher and Dr. Adrian Goldsworthy.
