5 – The Island at the Edge of the World – Part 3

54 BCE. Julius Caesar is returning to Britain. And Cassivellaunus isn't excited about it. However, this time Caesar is bringing over 800 ships with him. This isn't a minor expedition, Caesar is coming in force. This is a clash of titans and we will see if the Celtic warrior culture and it's focus on heroic combat can effectively compete with the ordered machine of war that Rome was famous for.

    Ah. I assumed I have been mispronouncing it all this time. Actually mentally mispronouncing it since I doubt I have ever actually said Vercingetorix out loud.

    Vercingetorix is a great name and should be insinuated into the conversation wherever possible. May I suggest the following vehicle: there’s a great statue of Vercingetorix on horseback by Bertholdi, who designed the Starue of Liberty. All four of the horse’s legs are in the air as it vaults over his fallen foe – a passionate momument to an inspiring leader!
