The Battle of Gambolo was an event from Derlavaian history. The Algarvic barbarians defeated the Kaunian Empire. Scholars a thousand years later wondered, if the Kaunians had won this battle, would the Empire still endure today?[1]

Literary Comment[]

This appears to be an allusion to the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest, a personal favorite subject for Harry Turtledove.
