The peace treaty with Rome was broken when Gaius Valerius and his legion were wiped out by a tribe of Gauls led by Lysircos, so Julius Caesar gave his son, Tribune Marcus Valerius and his British and German auxiliary legionaries, who were loyal to his father a chance to avenge his death. Caesar wants to extend his frontiers in Gaul and stop the tribes from joining those of Vercingetorix, the leader of all the Gallic tribes. Among the other tribal leaders, Modius wants to renew the peace treaty with Rome, acknowledging their superior power and wants peace for his beautiful daughter Antea, but Lysiricos wants the Romans out of Gaul. Tribune Marcus Valerius now faces a difficult task. Will it be peace or war?
