About Ben Kane
`History is more than facts on a page. It's the sounds, the smells, the people, the passion. History should make you think: "I was there". My books are born from my obsession with Roman history. I've followed Spartacus's trail across Italy. I've stood at Cannae and pictured Hannibal's army meeting the massed legions of Rome. I've watched the sea lapping against the fortifications of Syracuse, besieged by the Romans for close to two years. Immerse yourself in these incredible stories and - like me - remind yourself why the legend of Rome endures.' To find out more about BEN KANE, his world and his novels, visit: www.benkane.net.
