    The decline of Celtic civilization

    This is a good representation of a writing that we wish we had more of. This book should be excellent reading for anyone interested in Celtic, Roman, or military history. Read between the lines and one is left with as close to historically accurate representation of life for the Roman and Celtic peoples. This is a must read for any student or interested party in ancient history!

    In English!

    I read excerpts of this in Latin when I was in 10th grade. Believe me, it's a lot easier in English.
