The gladiatorial games of the Roman world comprised battle for entertainment and slaughter for profit. Although notorious for the use of prisoners of war, conquered slaves and condemned criminals as dispensable 'extras', some did volunteer for the gladiatorial profession. Spectacle was everything: combatants were encouraged to draw their opponents' blood and prolong death. For citizen and caesar, the gladiators created drama through their violence - and the public loved them for it. This title relates how men, and women too, came to find themselves in the arena. As well as detailing the various types of gladiator, their weaponry and equipment, it reveals what training and daily life was like for each - and how this culminated in their stepping into the arena.

Osprey's Warrior Series of books concentrate on the service conditions, dress and equipment, motivation, training, recruitment and experiences of fighting men and women. Uniforms and equipment are shown in exploded diagrams. Featuring specially commissioned colour artworks and illustrated throughout with black and white photography, Osprey's Warrior series is an ideal reference resource for re-enactors, military history enthusiasts, model makers and wargamers.
