The Roman invasion of Britain with the Brits trying to consolidate an army out of old enemies and tribes who have never trusted each other up against an army with elephants and brilliant tactics. We all know what happened but the telling of it here is thrilling stuff. Good escapism with excellent battle scenes, it follows Caligula with the same slave, Rufus, our hero, but is easily read on its own.
Claudius - Emperor Of Rome, Conqueror Of Britain - Emperor Claudius has unleashed the Roman legions against Britain. Caratacus, war chief of the Britons, must unite the tribes for a desperate last stand. Claudius desires total conquest. Caratacus will fight for freedom. An epic battle is coming. Heroes will be made and kings will fall in a struggle that will echo through the annals of history.
