Obelix is in love – but the beautiful Panacea is engaged to Tragicomix, a conscript in the Roman army. Who’d have expected to see Asterix in a legionary’s uniform? When he and Obelix join up to rescue Tragicomix from North Africa, Centurions Nefarius Purpus and Dubuis Status don’t know what’s hit them. But the Gauls and their fellow recruits have a smashing trip abroad.
