    "In AD 9, Publius Quinctilius Varus, the Imperial Legate in Germany, lead three legions across the river Rhine into Germania Magna, which had been occupied by Roman forces over the previous 20 years. Varus and his men were never to return, slaughtered by German tribesman in the Teutoburger Wald, the densely forested countryside surrounding the modern village of Kalkriese. Led into a trap by the Cheruscan nobleman Arminius, the legions were attacked from all sides by a coalition of German tribes as the entire region erupted against their Roman overlords. Although later expeditions punished the German tribes and recaptured the lost legionary eagles, the slaughter of Varus and his legions lead to the abandonment of any plans to transform Germania Magna into a province and saw the establishment of the Rhine as the border between the Roman world and the German tribes"--Page 4 of cover
