If you want to discover the captivating history of Spartacus, then keep reading...

Almost 2,100 years ago, a gladiator walked out of the arena. And he never walked back into it.

Spartacus, a Thracian whose early life is hidden in the mists of history, is one of the most infamous figures of antiquity. Perhaps the most famous gladiator of all, parts of Spartacus story inspired elements of the award-winning film Gladiator (2000). Yet even though his story is familiar to millions, he remains a strangely mysterious figure, one whose innermost heart was never revealed to the world. All of the existing records about Spartacus and the war that he started and lost were written by Roman historians. None of the slaves account of these events has survived the onslaught of the years; thus, many of Spartacus actions, and all of his motives, are matters of speculation.

Even Plutarch, a contemporary, could only guess at what this hero of the oppressed truly wanted or how he really felt. Diving into this great mans psyche and puzzling together his thoughts and feelings is a fascinating subject. And his story makes for gripping reading.
