In 71 BC, Rome's legions fought a desperate battle against an army 42,000 strong, led by the gladiator Spartacus. It was not an invasion force they faced, but an army of slaves fighting for their own freedom. Both armies numbered around 42,000 men, but that is where the similarity ended. The Romans were led by their wealthiest citizen, Marcus Crassus. This was a battle between an army of the poor and the richest man in Rome. The whole structure of Roman society was at stake. Spartacus had to be stopped at all costs. With new video game technology you are about to see this great battle as never before--the vast numbers of soldiers, the troop formations, how they fought and how the battle was won.
