(From the publisher):
Drucus Pollio had been a gallant Roman soldier since his boyhood. Now as he approached old age in far-away Britain he was enjoying the peace of retirement. With hard work and loving care he built his villa, laid out its garden and its statues, and tilled his fields.
Suddenly, without warning Drucus' hard-won peace was shattered. Queen Boudicca and her savege tribemen were in arms against the Romans. But Drucus had too long a life of danger to be afraid. The Queen spoke truly: he was indeed a Captain among men.
