Julius Caesar and Pompey the Great were two of the greatest generals Rome had ever produced. Together they had brought vast stretches of territory under Roman dominion. In 49 BC they turned against each other and plunged Rome into civil war. Legion was pitched against legion in a vicious battle for political domination of the vast Roman world. Based on Caesar's own account of the war, Goldsworthy provides an account of this desperate power struggle. The armies were evenly matched but in the end Caesar's genius as a commander and his great good luck brought him victory in 45 BC.

Author Information

Adrian Goldsworthy read Ancient and Modern History at St John's College, Oxford, remaining there to gain his doctorate in Ancient History. This thesis formed the basis for his first book, 'The Roman Army at War 100BC-AD 200' (OUP, 1996). His research has focused on aspects of warfare in the Graeco-Roman world and he has written two further books: 'Roman Warfare' (Cassell, 2000) and 'The Punic Wars' (Cassell, 2000).

Review quote

"I am most favorably impressed by the Essential Histories series on the American Civil War. Written by four of the best historians of the military course of the war, these volumes provide a lucid and concise narrative of the campaigns in both the Eastern and Western theaters as well as penetrating analyses of strategies and leadership. Ideal for classroom use or fireside reading."
