Spartacus has landed – and you could own it, the very first copy ever signed!

I received my first copy of Spartacus: The Gladiator in the post today. It was awesome holding it in my hands for the first time. I think the cover looks fantastic. Even though I don’t want to part with it, I’ve had so many emails from people who want to read it that I’ve decided to give it away. Win this, the first signed copy of the book ever – and the only one to be given away so far, 6 weeks before publication date by answering this question. In what year did Spartacus begin his rebellion?

    The third servile war started in 73bc until 71bc. If this is right the new book would be a fantastic birthday present to me as my birthday is monday!!

    Regardless of winning or not I can’t wait to read it Ben the cover looks great.

    The Rebellion was in 73BC. It is not known if Sparacus himself was captured or not, but his legend lived on.
