The great Roman invasion of Britain began in AD 43. Ranged against the invaders were the forces of Caratacus. Through the eyes of Bran, the massive war dog, the reader takes part in the great battle before Camulodunum, and sees smething of the terrible aftermath: sees, too, the Roman side, and Vespasian's attack on the fortress of Mai Dun.
Many traces of this invasion can be seen today in Britain. Henry Treece brings this fascinating and vital period in our past vividly to life, weaving also into his dramatic story an account of two very different civilisations, the Celts and the Romans. This is a great historical novelist writing at the top of his form.
