Summary
Spartacus was a Thracian gladiator who started a prison breakout, with 74 men, armed with kitchen knives. It grew into a full scale rebellion against Rome, the most famous slave revolt in history. With an army of gladiators, ex-slaves and other desperadoes, he managed to defeat a succession of Roman armies and bring the Republic to its knees
Summary
A portrait of the iconic gladiator traces his rise from slavery in Thrace and the gladiatorial school rebellion in 73 BC to his leadership at the head of a rapidly growing army and its frequent clashes with the Roman military
