When the dictator Sulla took power in Rome in 82 BCE, a young army officer, Quintus Sertorius, fled to Spain, where he used his military expertise to help the native people fight back against their Roman oppressors. Few ancient sources for this important war have survived, but Matyszak draws on the most recent scholarly analyses to reconstruct a narrative of the dramatic struggle between Sertorius' army and the forces sent from Rome under the command of the young Pompey.
