It was originally published as a serial in Pilote issues — in The book is inspired by the battle of Alesia , where the Gaulish warrior chief Vercingetorix surrendered to Julius Caesar. However, only the very end of the actual battle appears in the book — the main plot concerns what happened after the battle. This episode, like Asterix and the Cauldron , is plotted like a detective novel, with a mystery to be solved at the very end. The book begins with Vercingetorix conceding defeat to Julius Caesar. His surrendered weapons remain at Caesar's chair for several hours, until a Roman archer steals Vercingetorix's famous shield , which he loses in a game of dice to another legionary, who then loses it to a drunken centurion, in return for the centurion not reporting him for a military offence.

One of the better Asterix and Obelix stories, though I wish I understood the regionalisms and colloquialisms they bring up constantly in the book.
I spent time in France, but never in this particular region, so I'm a little clueless. Best character? Joligibus, of course. He's such a lazy, low-key little crumb.

Le Bouclier arverne - Les Aventures d'Asterix le Gaulois #11
It was originally published as a serial in Pilote issues in The story begins with Vercingetorix conceding his defeat to Julius Caesar. He throws his weapons at Caesar's feet — or rather, on Caesar's feet. In pain, Caesar hops away to the infirmary while Vercingetorix is arrested. The weapons remain where they were thrown, for several hours, until a curious, somewhat greedy Roman legionary sees that no one's looking, and steals Vercingetorix's famous shield. He then loses the shield in a game of dice to another legionary, who is himself out of camp without a pass.
