This is the story that Julius Caesar never wanted told. For almost two thousand years the famous Roman dictator has had a monopoly on history. His was the only version we could read of the many battles he fought in pre-Christian Gaul (modern France) before returning to Rome and becoming one of Shakespeare's popular heroes. Now, spattered with blood, sex and intrigue we have the letters of Iron Shaft - a soldier in the famous Roman Tenth Legion, who tells a very different tale. With a sharp sword and a sharper pen he stabs right into the guts of his enemies and gives us the lust, the reasons and - the truth. He was there. He made it happen. A penetrating account of how he made his enemies shiver and their daughters quiver. He was called Iron Shaft for a good reason!
