Overview

The Conquest of Gaul by Julius Caesar, W. A. MacDevitt

The earliest eye-witness account of Britain and its inhabitants appears in these famous memoirs.

Betweeen 58 and 50 BC Julius Caesar not only conquered almost the whole of modern France, Belgium and Switzerland, with parts of Holland and Germany, but also invaded Britain twice. It was partly as a piece of personal propaganda that he recorded his campaigns against the various Gallic tribes in Latin; nevertheless these simple, direct and lucid texts are a unique direct source on Gaul in that period and also the only narrative actually written by a great general of antiquity about his own campaigns.

About the Author

Gaius Julius Caesar was born in 100 BC into an ancient patrician family. Much of his life was spent on military campaigns, & he returned to govern Rome as dictator. His dictatorship was declared perpetual in 44 BC, but his many bitter enemies hatched a conspiracy & assasinated him later that year.

S. Handford translated a number of authors for Penguin, including Sallust and Aesop.

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!
