His sacrifice for the greater good, the passion and faith with which he fights for his dreams until the very end make him a symbol of the free human spirit, an inspiration for all the downtrodden and oppressed.
The book aims at presenting the personality of Spartacus in the best possible way, while at the same time emphasizing the events, personalities and peculiarities of the era. Among them, special attention was paid to the study related to the life of gladiators. This stratum of Roman society is extremely interesting because, although subordinate, people deprived of their liberty had certain privileges and rights. They were given to them as a reward for the victories won in the arena. Spartacus was one of the most skilled and famous gladiators of his time. But despite the opportunity to gain his freedom after many successful battles and continue to train gladiators, he chose the path of freedom for all. Spartacus was a charismatic leader who, despite his ancestral origins, had an innate military talent and a flame that inspired people. It is interesting to know that in addition to gladiators, the rebel army included many other oppressed people: plowmen, impoverished farmers and craftsmen from the Roman provinces, who were not slaves, but led an equally hard life. They all strove for a dignified and free life, away from oppressors and injustices.
The detailed description of the epic battles that marked the revolt of Spartacus, and the Roman army are presented with magnificent illustrations by the artist Veselin Chakarov. His drawings give life to the encyclopedia and turn it into a beautiful work of art, which every book connoisseur should have in their personal library.
