I can't praise this book highly enough it captured my imagination and fed my hungry brain with digestible information from both sides of the conflict and believe me on the Gaul side there is a lot of it. Every tribe, their leaders, locations and tactics are all brought in to the picture as one by one they are subdued by Roman charm, sword or siege and it is in the latter that the Romans excelled culminating in one of history's most brutal, Alesia.
Of course all of this was masterminded by one man, military genius, cunning politician, and hard as roman nails he shaped the world we live in now and was light years ahead of anyone or anything to be found in the world BCE so it's not surprising the book takes a lot of information from his The Gallic Wars but the author ( Michael M. Sage ) is not afraid to say when he thinks things have been spiced up or actions have become difficult to explain because our genius is being deliberately vague. What a pity our man was cut down by a bunch of cowards we may have got another conquest out of him and another brilliant book out of Mr Sage.

As a Dane I was interested to read about the Cimbri & Teutones, who travelled 'Tour de Europe' for new land. But this was not America and their story ended heroic - but sad. Travelling much in France I have seen many of the places mentioned in the book, but Alesia I think is the most interesting. One has to visit the place, where Vercingetorix faught Cæsar in 52 BC.

Very Good Introduction and Overview 20 Feb 2012
By bonnie_blu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is an excellent introduction to the Roman conquest of Gaul. The majority of the text centers on Caesar's campaigns for two reasons: 1) the most detailed source we have about the conquest of Gaul is Caesar's "De Bello Gallico," and 2) Caesar conquered the vast majority of Gaul (earlier Roman leaders only conquered a small portion of southern Gaul). Of note is the fact that the author is evenhanded in his treatment of Caesar and Roman society in the first century B.C.E.

another interesting book in the Roman Conquests series 3 Jan 2014
By S J. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Only thing I would have liked to see is more maps and diagrams interspersed along with the narrative to help in visualizing the campaigns without referring to the few maps in the beginning of the book.
