A Heroic History of Gladiators and Ancient Warriors by Rachel Minay

Blast Through the Past takes a look at some of the weird jobs people in the past had to do and the skills they needed to order to explore new lands, win battles or make amazing breakthroughs in science. Get under the skin of the most famous and infamous, the cleverest and some of the the barmiest people who have shaped history. Take a chronological look at a whole host of ancient warriors. From the earliest civilisations of ancient Sumer, to the seafaring exploits of the Vikings, blast around the world visiting the fighting pharaohs, the fearless Spartans, the ruthless Romans and their love of Gladiators entertaining them in staged battles, the bloodthirsty Mayans and more. Discover if you would have had what it takes to be a legionnaire, a wild celtic warrior or even be as successful a leader as Alexander the Great! Blast Through the Past is a series aimed at children aged 8+.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
