Cleopatra's Kidnappers by Stephen Dando-Collins

Cleopatra's Kidnappers

How Caesar's Sixth Legion Gave Egypt to Rome and Rome to Caesar

by Stephen Dando-Collins

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
12 Hrs. 37 Min.


A powerful tale of war, romance, and one of history's most desperate gambles.

Julius Caesar was nothing if not bold. When, in the wake of his defeat of Pompey at Pharsalus his victorious legions refused to march another step under his command, he pursued his fleeing rival into Egypt with an impossibly small force of Gallic and German cavalry, raw Italian recruits, and nine hundred Spanish prisoners of war - tough veterans of Pompey's Sixth Legion.

Cleopatra's Kidnappers tells the epic saga of Caesar's adventures in Egypt through the eyes of these captured, but never defeated, legionaries. In this third volume in his definitive history of the Roman legions, Stephen Dando-Collins reveals how this tiny band of fierce warriors led Caesar's little army to great victories against impossible odds. Bristling with action and packed with insights and newly revealed facts, this eye-opening account introduces you to the extraordinary men who made possible Caesar's famous boast, "I came, I saw, I conquered."
