4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, 8 May 2010
This review is from: The Spartacus War: The Revolt of the Gladiators (Hardcover)
I have read several books about the history of the gladiator and Roman history

To most readers of history Spartacus is an enigma with little historical facts or records left to analyse to have analytical view.

Barry Strauss has done a very good job in trying to put facts first and not going down the road of eulogising Spartacus for something he was not. He tells the reader about the probabilities of how some of the battles were fought and what locations and does not patronise the reader in this regard.The book also informs the readers about Rome and the events regarding the uprising and all the main players who helped in trying to crush the rebellion.
