The Civil War is Julius Caesar’s personal account of his war with Pompey the Great—the war that destroyed the five-hundred-year-old Roman Republic. Caesar the victor became Caesar the dictator. In three short books, Caesar describes how, in order to defend his honor and the freedom of both himself and the Roman people, he marched on Rome and defeated the forces of Pompey and the Senate in Italy, Spain, and Greece. Julius Caesar himself was one of the most eminent writers of the age in which he lived. His “commentaries” offer a unique opportunity to read the victor’s version of events.

    " Julius Ceasar writes his version of the Roman Civil War. I thought that it gave insight to the event even if biased. Afterall, the winners write the history books for the most part. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 3/16/2010

    " Talk about strategy, this book is one battle after another with a human side of Caesar since he wrote it. This illustrates his talents were not just for battle. "

    " Caesar becomes master of the known world. Then dies. "

    " Very little on the battle at Zile in Anatolia, 47 BCE. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ainsley | 2/15/2008

    " More propaganda from the man who did it all. It's a bit annoying to think that Caesar could write as well as this, on top of his many other talents. Essential reading. "
