Gladiators by Stephen Wisdom
Book DescriptionThe Gladiatorial games of the Ancient Roman world used prisoners of war, conquered slaves or condemned criminals as dispensable "extras". Some, however, volunteered for the profession and their fame spread throughout the Empire, from tavern to Imperial Palace. This title relates how these combatants were encouraged to draw their opponents' blood and prolong his death, thus giving the public what they wanted to see. It relates how they were recruited and trained, and many types of gladiator are covered, from the net-wielding Retiarius to the fish-helmeted Myrmilo.

Author Biography - Stephen Wisdom
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 historic roles. Based in a quiet village in eastern England, he currently devotes himself to writing, sculpture, and making armour. Angus McBride, one of the world's most respected historical illustrators, has contributed to more than 75 Osprey titles over the past 25 years. Since 1976, he has lived and worked in the Republic of South Africa, in Cape Town.
