Product description

You’ve probably heard of Spartacus…

He is dead famous for:

*being quite a good gladiator *giving the Romans the run-around *looking an awful lot like Kirk Douglas

But have you heard that Spartacus: *fought for the Romans as well as against them *once camped his army of rebel slaves inside a volcano *cut a deal with a bunch of double-crossing pirates

Yes, even though he’s dead, Spartacus is still full of surprises. Now you can read the inside story in Spartacus’ secret diary, catch up on all the latest battle results in The Daily Gladius, and find out how to keep the mighty Roman Empire at bay with just a few trusty followers and a cunning plan.

From camping out in a volcano with his army to dealing with pirates, Spartacus’ story is full of surprises. The world of the Empire and life in Thrace (modern-day Bulgaria) form the backdrop to this incredible tale. Beginning with his time at (and escape from) gladiator school we follow Spartacus into the crater of Vesuvius, where he amasses his slave army. From there, we follow the latest results in his battles against the Roman generals in the Roman Times, keep an eye on his bloodstained ‘diary’ as he plans his next move and dreams of crossing the Alps and going home. Ends with the battle against Cruel Crassus and the crucifixion of 6,000 slaves who all claim to be ‘Spartacus’...
