La guerre des Gaules // Livre I en librairies

La guerre des Gaules // Livre I en librairies | Roman Archaeology | Scoop.it

La guerre des Gaules // premier livre

Notre histoire se déroule durant la conquête de la Gaule dite « celtique » par les légions de Jules César (- 58 à – 50 Av. JC.). Nous nous sommes basés sur l’ouvrage qu’il a rédigé tandis qu’il menait cette guerre et qu’il a ensuite publié à Rome, pour sa propre gloire et sa propagande, dès la fin de son proconsulat en Gaule :La guerre des Gaules. L’arrière-plan du scénario se réfère essentiellement à ce livre, même si nous avons tenu compte des dernières recherches sur cette question afin d’avoir un rendu plus proche de la réalité. Cependant, le récit que nous développons (sur deux ou trois tomes selon le nombre de pages et la présence ou pas de dossier) s’attarde avant tout sur le parcours de six « personnalités » traversant cette époque troublée. Jules César et Vercingétorix, une espionne éduenne au service des Romains et un druide fanatique qui prêche la guerre à outrance contre l’envahisseur, un chef Arverne combattant sous les ordres de Vercingétorix et un général romain proche du parti sénatorial qui obéit à César, mais ne partage pas ses desseins.
