Freedom. Justice. Family. Self Determination. Liberty. These basic ideals have been America's rallying cry since 1776, but their origins date back much earlier - to the conflict that brought down the ancient world's most powerful empire and the few brave warriors who dared to take them on. For 1,000 years Rome conquers everything - you join the empire or you die. But where there is tyranny, there is someone to fight back, and for over 700 years, those groups are the barbarians we know: Goths, Celts, Vandals, Visigoths, Huns. Their mission is the opposite: to live free or die. As shrouded in myth and intrigue as Game of Thrones, BARBARIANS RISING tells the epic story of those who fought for independence from the world's first military dictatorship.
