Description

Published on the eve of the civil war which led to the end of the Roman Republic, this is Julius Caesar's autobiographical account of the conquest of Gaul and the first Roman invasions of Britain and Germany. On one level a straightforward narrative of the campaigns Caesar fought against the Gauls, Germans and Britons, it also serves a deeper political purpose, revealing him as a commander of flair, courage and persistence - a man of the people, a man without rival. This new translation reflects the purity of Caesar's Latin. The introduction includes a survey of Caesar's role and reputation in later thought, along with detailed notes, maps, a table of dates and a glossary.show more
