My book has taken historical facts and blended them with a fictional character to help involve the reader in experiencing the history.

In his historical fiction “Britannia” (published by Trafford Publishing), author Nicolas Heft recounts the first steps of the Roman conquest of Britain in an exciting tale told through the eyes of a Roman legionnaire.

“The most commonly found books on the Roman incursion into Gaul and Britain are nonfiction, historical pieces,” Heft writes. “My book has taken historical facts and blended them with a fictional character to help involve the reader in experiencing the history.”

“Britannia” chronicles the adventures of Marcus Caius, a legionnaire in Caesar’s army. As Caesar’s Legions continue to conquer Gaul, many of the enemy reinforcements are coming from Britain. Caesar decides to attack Britain to try and stem the flow of reinforcements into Gaul. The book follows the developments that took place during the expedition.

“The western world as we know it today owes many of its origins, laws and politics to the Roman Empire,” Heft writes. “Much like modern wars, Julius Caesar had to attack another country directly to help stem the flow of reinforcements to Gaul.”
