This is excellent.

There is so much on the simply forgotten life of Spartacus, but the writer of this book provides a well-written glimpse into the hero's life based on analyses of surviving ancient circumstances and well recalled through events.

Adventure Filled

If you desire to understand the real story of Spartacus this is it. Not a Hollywood version. This audiobook delivered the background to the thrilling TV series Spartacus. I love both.

This is an excellent audiobook for anyone involved in the history of Spartacus. Joins the historical facts of what little is known on the Spartacus War with the more important story of Spartacus and the slave rebellion that has fascinated us for so long now.

How to

I was hoping for a better belief of the Man Spartacus and his early days in the Ludus. But little is understood so the audiobook focuses on the wars and the actions of the armies.
