Summary
  • "'I am Spartacus' is one of the most famous lines in movie history. Yet the real gladiator-slave who led a devastating revolt against the Roman establishment and almost won is a shadowy figure. In his new book, historian M. J. Trow tells the dramatic story of the original rebel and asks: who was Spartacus?" "Spartacus was born in Thrace between 100 and 90 BC and was a free man who served in the Roman army before being sold into slavery as a gladiator. His wife is recorded as being a follower of Dionysius; a cult that Roman society considered to be dangerous and out of control."
  • "The breakout of Spartacus and his fellow gladiators was initially regarded as being a minor incident. But by the time the Roman praetor found them Spartacus' rising had grown to an army of 3,000 men. In the first of several overwhelming victories they cut the Roman forces to pieces. By the time the slave army was captured and defeated, it numbered 70,000 and had come close to changing the structure of the Roman world."--BOOK JACKET
