Albion Ablaze is the third in a series of five novels that bring alive a new and very different interpretation of Julius Caesar's Commentaries on his Gallic Wars. The story is told through the eyes of Marcus Rutilius Robura, originally a Military Tribune in the Tenth Legion, commanding a cavalry troop made up from the sons of Rome's nobility. These are the 'Rutilius journals', written by Marcus's 21st century alter ego, Mike Oakwood, (read Caesar's Tribune and Master of Gaul for the full story of this strange transition) in order to keep in touch with his real persona. This volume of the journals tells the story of the two years of Caesar's campaigns in which he twice visited the almost unknown (to the Romans) island of Britannia, or Albion as it was often called. Much of this part of Marcus's story relating to the two invasions in 55 and 54 BC is pure fiction, the interpretation of the author and in no way derived from Caesar's commentaries. However, this story is just as plausible as the tale that Caesar's legions pulled off landings two years running against the well-armed and hostile, woad-painted warriors that inhabited the hinterland of Kent at that time.

This is the author's alternative version of how Caesar might just have succeeded in this remarkable feat of arms. Read for yourself the continuing adventures of Marcus Rutilius, once Caesar's Tribune entrusted with special duties, now Caesar's Deputy (Legate) sent to Albion to bring the people of Cantium over to a Roman alliance.
