Synopsis

The Legions of Rome: The Roman Invasions of Britain
Explore the invasion of the Roman Empire in three parts as dramatic reenactments, illustrations, battle reconstructions, maps, illustrations, and location footage combine to offer a comprehensive look at the fall of one of the world's most powerful civilizations. Though the powerful Legions of the Empire seemed invincible in their formidable march across Europe, even the strongest of nations aren't impervious to corrosive influence. The three episodes featured in this release include "The Punic Wars," "The Gallic Wars," and "The Roman Invasions of Britain." ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

The Legions of Rome: The Punic Wars
Travel back in time to the second century B.C. as on-location reenactments and reconstructions illustrate just how the legendary Hannibal established his formidable reputation during the historic Punic Wars. In addition to the fifteen day march across the Alps that would land him in the history books, this release also showcases Hannibal's victories over the Romans at Cannae and Trebia that would find him undefeated until his fall at Zama in 203 B.C. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

The Legions of Rome: The Gallic Wars
Follow along as Julius Caesar and his Roman Legions lay siege upon Gaul - now modern-day France - in this film exploring just how Caesar's initially tenuous involvement in the bloody inter-tribal Gallic warfare eventually turned into a full-fledged mission of command and conquest. Though his actions at first raised genuine concern Italian security, Rome's most powerful commander was about to hatch one of his most daring plans. To this day Caesar's account of the Gallic Wars offers one of the most compelling depictions of life in First Century Gaul B.C.-era Gaul ever recorded. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
