One Roman general in particular lets his sadistic tendencies cloud all better judgement and it could be argued that his actions were the tipping point that condemned over 100,000 of his fellow Romans to death.
There is no longer just talk of Roman invasion. Caractacus and Togodumnus, the charismatic young warriors must lead their armies against the might of the Roman Empire; but as the invaders spread throughout Britannica like a plague, the brothers realize the Romans are a force they know little about and they use tactics that have nothing to do with honor. The young royals must do everything in their power to halt their progress, battles are fierce, kings are lost and all seems hopeless after betrayal brings the kingdom to its knees.
