Publisher's summary Edit

Dr Who encounters some of the most adventurous — and hardiest — characters in history as he journeys through time to meet the Conquerors. Not surprisingly the Doctor becomes mixed up in a few adventures himself as he witnesses Julius Caesar's invasion of Britain, Napoleon's triumph at the battle of Austerlitz and Hannibal's crossing of the Alps.
