Caesar's Commentary on the Gallic and Civil Wars, and Commentary by Hirtius by Julius Caesar, W.A. McDevitte, W.S. Bohn

Julius Caesar (100-44 B.C.) is one of the most famous men in history, and his name was used to denote the status of emperor throughout European countries like Italy, Germany, and Russia nearly 2,000 years after his famous assassination.
But before he won the civil war against Pompey the Great and ended the Roman Republic permanently, he became a man of power and fame in modern day France, leading armies in the Gallic campaign. Moreover, Caesar wrote extensively about the campaign, giving readers a fantastic primary account of the history of the times. It was after the Gallic campaign that Caesar would eventually lead his legions across the Rubicon and into Italy, starting the civil war that he would ultimately win.

Under the modest title of Commentaries, Caesar offered the records of his most famous military campaigns, writing them in the form of notes and memoranda. Despite their simplicity, they are among the most famous military memoirs ever written.
