Spartacus has passed into legend as an enduring symbol of righteousness in his noble battle for the freedom of man. This transcendent icon did not appear from the aether and had plenty of inspiration from the brave and often forgotten figures that stood before him. The actions of Spartacus and his rebellion against the Roman Republic offer a unique look into the details of commercial slavery in Rome, and its long-lasting effects on the evolution of a nation.
You'll learn about:
- The Roman acquisition of slaves
- Life as a Roman slave
- Runaway slaves and the stirrings of rebellion
- The first and second Servile Wars
- The mysterious origins of Spartacus
- Spartacus leads an army
- A rebellion defeated
- And much more
This book will take you through the Servile Wars, also known as the Slave Wars, which were a series of slave rebellions over a 60-year period of the Roman Republic’s history. Occurring in relatively quick succession, each Servile War increased in strength and fervor, until Spartacus and his allies nearly managed to bring the Republic to its knees.

Not as advertised
Based on the title I expected the narrative to follow Spartacus closely. Instead, I was provided a history on slavery in the Roman Republic. Not much at all on the historic Spartacus. Disappointing.
It was good not great due to taking 7 chapters till the subject of Spartacus came up. Earlier 7 chapters we're about Rome slavery. Still overall worth the money and education.
