Subject: ÒThis book gives a stirring account of the revolt of the Gauls under Vercingetorix against the power of Imperial Rome. Verica and Ardorix, two British lads who had been brought from their native land to be sold into slavery, are caught up by the revolt,; they throw in their lot with the Gauls, and are sent by Vercingetorix on more than one dangerous mission. Mr Lindsay describes the ebb and flow of the campaign in which the Gauls were within an ace of victory; and shows how the military genius and organising ability of Caesar counted in the end for more than the dogged courage of his foes.Ó (OUP blurb, courtesy of Jenny McMorris, Assistant Archivist)
