A fascinating glimpse into ancient warfare
Julius Caesar's self-promoting memoirs of his time as a Roman general in Gaul are a surprisingly interesting read. While it is a bit hard to keep track of the shifting alliances between the many Gallic tribes, Caesar describes Roman battlefield maneuvers, siege warfare, and diplomacy in a clear, readable manner. I felt that the subtext of the book was "I, Julius Caesar, am an awesome general and savvy diplomat. I always displays great reason and mercy but am not afraid to punish treachery." Nevertheless, it is a fascinating look at warfare in the ancient world.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
