Caesar
1.  Caesar by Christian Meier
The list author says:

12.99   Used & New from: 0.01
3.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

The Conquest of Gaul (Classics)
2.  The Conquest of Gaul (Classics) by Julius Caesar
The list author says:
  "Caesar's Gallic Wars in his own inimitable words - exciting, brutal and interesting to see the way Caesar chose to portray himself to the Senate and people of Rome"
7.99   Used & New from: 0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

The Civil War: Together with the Alexandrian War, the African War, and the Spanish War (Classics)
3.  The Civil War: Together with the Alexandrian War, the African War, and the Spanish War (Classics) by Julius Caesar
The list author says:
  "More of Caesar's own writing, this time his version of the Civil War that ended with him being made Dictator for life, and then, 5 years later, a victim of political assassination"

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

The Fall of the Roman Republic (Classics)
4.  The Fall of the Roman Republic (Classics) by Plutarch
The list author says:
  "Plutarch's biography of Caesar (amongst others). He paired it with his equally enthralling biography of Alexander as he saw the two men as parallels, but irritatingly that's in another volume."
9.17   Used & New from: 0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

The Jugurthine War/The Conspiracy of Catiline (Penguin Classics)
5.  The Jugurthine War/The Conspiracy of Catiline (Penguin Classics) by Sallust
The list author says:
  "Sallust was a friend of Caesar's and in his monologue on Catiline's conspiracy, he gives 'Caesar's' clemency speech in full (as Sallust saw it, anyway)"
9.49   Used & New from: 0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

The Civil Wars
6.  The Civil Wars by Appian
The list author says:
  "Not as racy and readable as Plutarch and Suetonius, but good on the detail leading up to the time of Caesar and the faults in the system which he exploited"
8.79   Used & New from: 4.00
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

The Twelve Caesars
7.  The Twelve Caesars by Gaius Suetonius
The list author says:
  "The most scurrilous biographer, probably, of the ancient world, gives a different view, in some respects, of Caesar from Plutarch"
Used & New from: 0.06
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Caesar's Women (Masters of Rome)
8.  Caesar's Women (Masters of Rome) by Colleen McCullough Doctor of Neurophysiology
The list author says:
  "This looks like a chick-lit page-turner, but is actually an amazingly detailed re-telling of the political infighting during Caesar's early career before he goes to Gaul. Covers the year of his consul"
7.49   Used & New from: 0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (17 customer reviews)

Caesar (Masters of Rome)

6.99   Used & New from: 2.94
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

The October Horse (Masters of Rome)
10.  The October Horse (Masters of Rome) by Colleen McCullough Doctor of Neurophysiology
The list author says:
  "Caesar is assassinated half way through, and though McCullough manfully carries on with Augustus,the energy of the book is dissipated."
6.99   Used & New from: 0.01
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

Caesar
11.  Caesar by Allan Massie
The list author says:
  "An interpretation of Caesar with a 20th century patina. Oddly Massie chooses to quote Shakespeare in this... It's not my view of Caesar but is an interesting take on him"
Used & New from: 0.01
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

The Ides of March
12.  The Ides of March by Kurt, Jr. Vonnegut
The list author says:
  "Interesting literary novel which mediates on life, death, responsibility and relations with others. Written in epistolary mode, so Caesar's fictiona;l own words"
Used & New from: 2.84
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Caesar: Politician and Statesman
13.  Caesar: Politician and Statesman by M Gelzer

See buying options
Civil War (Oxford World's Classics)
14.  Civil War (Oxford World's Classics) by Lucan

Caesar
15.  Caesar by Adrian Goldsworthy
