The article provides a historical account on Gnaeus Domitius Corbulo, one of the greatest leaders of Roman Emperor Tiberius Claudius Drusus Nero Germanicus' legions. The emperor forbade Corbulo to continue any offensive operations and ordered Roman troops and garrisons withdrawn west of the Rhine River. When Corbulo received the emperor's orders, he is said to have exclaimed, "Happy the commanders who fought for the old republic!"--recalling the days when Roman generals operated more independently and generally free from any interference. Nevertheless, Corbulo loyally carried out his orders and withdrew his forces.
