Asterix the Legionary (Book #7)
Our story takes us to 50 B.C. when almost all of the known world was under the Roman Empires control. So the known world included Gaul as well but all of Gaul was not conquered. But wait, not all Gaul is under the rule of the Roman Empire... one small village of indomitable Gauls still holds out against the invaders and this is their story
In this story we go look at Book #7 of Asterix's adventures one of my favorites in the series i hope you will also like it and read it after this. (hopefully...)
Our story begins in the small Gaulish village where everything is calm and peacful. Our heroes Asterix and Obelix are off to catch some Wild Boar when they run into "Panacea" which Obelix immediately has a liking and after that its Obelix trying to impress Panacea in every way he knows and his good friend Asteerix is always there to help.
The twist to this love story comes when Panacea gets a message from her fiance "Tragicomix"! Obelix's Dream world comes to a booming end. The message says Tragicomix has being forced to join the legion and has being shipped to Africa to fight for Rome. Obelix as brave as he is offers to bring back Tragicomix for Panacea and Asterix joins him.
Our heroes goes to join the Roman Legion as Legionaries so that they can go to Africa for there search for Tragicomix. They are recruited as Legionaries with a Greek, Belgian, British, two Goths and a Egyptian who thinks this is an Inn. so basic Asterix and Obelix goes through basic training after changing the Roman diet to Wild Boar!!! and ultimately is shipped out to Africa to fight for Rome.
Once Asterix and Obelix get to Africa they start there search for Tragicomix. meanwhile the Roman army has divided one ruled by Julius Caesar and the other by a rouge Scipio. Asterix finds out that Tragicomix was captured by Scipios men, so he and obelix go out to get Tragicomix and attacks Scipio's camp. Scipio who thinks Caesar is attacking attacks back. Through this confusion Asterix finally finds Tragicomix and takes him back while the Roman army fights among them selves.
Our Heroes with Tragicomix finally comes back to Gaul and reunites Tragicomix with Panacea. well at the end of every adventure as always a great banquet is organized for the whole village.
