Author information

Gaius Julius Caesar (July 100BC 15 March 44BC) was aRoman generalandstatesmanand a distinguished writer ofLatinprose. He played a critical role in the gradual transformation of theRoman Republicinto theRoman Empire. Much of Caesar's life is known from his own accounts of his military campaigns, and from other contemporary sources, mainly the letters and speeches of Cicero and the historical writings of Sallust. The later biographies of Caesar bySuetoniusandPlutarchare also major sources. His Commentaries on the Gallic Wars is one of two of his writings that have come down to us in modern times. Vincent W. Rospond received his Master s in Eastern European History from the University of Illinois as well as studying at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow and the MBA program at Seton Hall University.

His first book for WHP is a new edition of Caesar s Commentaries of the Gallic Wars. In addition to his work at WHP, he is editor of the Journal of America s Military Past, a peered reviewed journal focusing on the people, places and things related to America s military.
