We explore four significant battles in Roman history and the people and events surrounding them. Spartacus tells the famous story of the slave and gladiator with a famous gift for leadership, who led a massive slave revolt against Rome at the height of her power. In Hail Caesar!, Julius Caesar, leader of the Roman troops, goes head to head with Gnaeus Pompey, champion of the Senate, after years of pursuing one another. It's Roman vs. Roman for control of the empire, Herman the German covers perhaps the most brutal battle for Rome, in which the Romans were betrayed by the patrician leader Arminius. They were led into the middle of a dense forest and ambushed in a slaughter that lasted three whole days and killed ten percent of their fighting force. In The Gothic Invasion of Rome, it's 378 AD, and the Roman Empire is crumbling. The once mighty power is now split in two, and the barbarians are literally at the gates, set for another and perhaps final gruesome clash. -- cover.
