The gladiatorial games of the Roman world comprised battle for entertainment and slaughter for profit. Although notorious for the use of prisoners of war, conquered slaves and condemned criminals as dispensable 'extras', some did volunteer for the gladiatorial profession. Spectacle was everything: combatants were encouraged to draw their opponents' blood and prolong death. For citizen and caesar, the gladiators created drama through their violence - and the public loved them for it. This title relates how men, and women too, came to find themselves in the arena. As well as detailing the various types of gladiator, their weaponry and equipment, it reveals what training and daily life was like for each - and how this culminated in their stepping into the arena.

From the Publisher:

Insights into the real lives of history's fighting men, packed with full colour illustrations, highly detailed cutaways, exploded artwork of weaponry and armour, and action-packed battle scenes.

About the Author:

Stephen Wisdom's interest in history was first awakened through his involvement with medieval drama, an interest that continues to influence his writing and illustrating career. An experienced re-enactor, he believes that a historical drama can educate just as well as a textbook, and he has undertaken a variety of historical roles. Based in a quiet village in England, he currently devotes himself to writing, sculpture, and making armour.
