Publisher Description

The pieces are in place. After many months of clandestine organisation, Vercingetorix, backed by the druids and leading an army of rebellious tribes, is ready to make his first moves towards independence for his people and the annihilation of Rome's presence in Gaul.

Meanwhile, Caesar tends to business in Aquileia, unaware that he is cut off from the bulk of his army in the north by the rebellion. A desperate message brought to Fronto at Massilia spurs the forces of Rome into movement and Caesar is compelled to act in cunning and unexpected ways in order to recover the initiative.

Fronto and his friends are heading for a clash of armies the likes of which the north has never seen, and the Tenth's legate is about to face his most trying year yet facing his opposite number - a chieftain of the Arverni - across the fields and hills of Gaul towards the greatest siege he's ever experienced: Alesia.

A great series!

Turney's Marius' Mules series has become real favourite of mine. He has created an excellent lead, in Fronto, and weaves him in and out of the tales skilfully. The Great Revolt maybe the best volume yet, with the epic victory over Vercingetorix as its finale. Turney more than matches his contemporaries, such as Simon Scarrow. If you haven't yet, buy volume one of the Marius' Mules series plough through them all. You won't be disappointed!

Marius' mules VII : The Great Revolt.

Brilliant historical fiction, as with the previous books in this series. Thoroughly entertaining good read, and I hope we don't have to wait too long for the rest.
