Subject: Adventurous Gk hero, Tros, opposes diabolically clever, evil Julius Caesar and foils invasion of Britain. Mundy website says this segment of the series spans from 55 BC, as Caesar makes plans to invade Britain, and ends with the failure of the invasion plans while later events are picked up in Queen Cleopatra (which ends shortly after CaesarÕs assassination) & Purple Pirate (which involves the post-Caesar civil wars & ends before CleopatraÕs death.

Rating: rather overwhelming but not dull tale (EFR) ÒMundy's revisionism, especially his view of Rome as a proto-fascist state, was ahead of its time.Ó (RT Gault)
