Conquered and oppressed by the Romans, the Britons rise in rebellion behind the leadership of a warrior-Queen Boadicia. Out of the ranks of the Briton warriors emerges a young man, Beric, whose skill and cunning earns him a trusted position among the Queen's chiefs. With his unique knowledge of the enemy, Beric leads his people in an insurgency against the Romans. The military prowess and self-discipline of the Roman legions is pitched against the wild and heroic charges of the Britons. But when Beric is captured and trained as a gladiator, he must risk his life for a newfound faith.

 

Beric the Briton was one of G. A. Henty’s best-selling titles, for it has everything needful for a historically accurate, exciting, adventure story.”

~Bill Potter, historian, lecturer

 

“G. A. Henty... gives us all the faith and chivalry, the pluck and fury, the mystery and intrigue that history rightly told demands.”

~George Grant, author, historian, pastor
