First published 1951. — 273 p.This is the story of Spartacus, the Greek gladiator whose army of slaves brought ancient Rome near to its knees. Over four years, in battle after bloody battle, he smashed one Roman army after another... It is the story of Varina, Spartacus's woman - a lovely blonde Amazon who fought naked with the men... It is the story of the most incredible rebellion history has ever known - men and women who fought bare-fisted and marched barefoot. At the end six thousand of them were strung, crucified, along the Appian Way... It is the blistering story of Rome in 71 BC, rotten with decadence and corruption, where gladiators killed for the perverted pleasure of tyrants, where profiteers, politicians and whore-masters lived in splendour on the sweat of slaves...Howard Fast (1914–2003) was one of the most prolific American writers of the twentieth century. He was a best-selling author of more than eighty works of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and screenplays.
