Overview

At the time of his death, Julius Caesar was the most powerful man on earth. Beginning with the Gallic Wars, he had fought a series of epic campaigns, culminating in the brutal civil war that brought the Roman Republic to an end and gave birth to the new Roman Empire. His battles ranged over much of the known world, from Spain, Gaul and Italy, to Greece, Asia Minor, and Egypt. Caesar's own Commentaries are a classic account of how he led his beloved legions into battle, but they leave many questions of war and strategy unanswered.

Theodore Ayrault Dodge's illustrated history of Caesar was first published in 1892, as part of his “Great Captains” series. The author, an experienced military officer and historian, visited all of the major battlefields, and made full use of ancient sources. His history follows Caesar’s entire career, reconstructs his victories and defeats, and explains his lasting impact on the art of war. “Caesar” is an unparalleled military history of one of the world’s greatest generals.

    Best Historian when in comes to warfare in aancient times.

    Theodoore Dodge is not an aurthor who writes biographies contrary to popular belief, he specifically focuses on the campaigns and military aspects of the careers of those of whom he writes. That being said, i have found him to be the greatest modern day ancient historian when it comes to military matters. A phenominal aurthor.

    Before i bought this book for my nook i owned and still do five copies of this book. This historian gets extremly in depth when it comes to military aspects and will ommit very large portions in his biogrophries as to the actual life of the person, and turn his focus fully onto the subjects military campaigns.

    When you are done reading a book written by theodore Dodge you will have extensive knowledge of military terminology and knowing of all the little sorts of details that the ancients had to apply in war. But I cannot stress enough this book is not a biography on ceaseer but rather his military campaigns. an excellent biography on ceaser would be Caeser by phillip freedman.
