5.0 out of 5 stars Superb reading, 2 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Civil War: Together with the Alexandrian War, the African War, and the Spanish War (Classics) (Paperback)
I had wanted to read Caesar's war diaries for years and had never made time to get round to it, well having finally made the time it was well worth the wait!
Incredible reading, excellently written with an astounding attention to detail that shows how this man made his name.
this book gives a fascinating account into his thoughts, strategies and adaptable tactics that made him not just one fo the greatest generals in history but also one who enerated phenomenal loyalty and dedication from his men and countrymen alike.
If you want the story of the man behind the myth, read this. (Especially amazing when you consider the price being about 3!)

A period/genre in which I have a particular interest, so this book filled a notable gap in my library. Can recommend to all who are also interested in Roman history. John Robinson

I found this book and its companion The Conquest of Gaul very entertaining.

The writing is so simple and very frank.

It's really amazing to see how this great man gives excuses for his conquest. Always managing to place himself on the right side of events.

This was a really good read! I was surprised at how lucid the style was, and though the broad outline of the story was familiar the detailed account of how the campaigns and set pieces were conducted were fascinating. The introduction was doubtless correct to stress the properganda nature of the work though, it makes you smile at times...

4.0 out of 5 stars History by the man who made it, 14 Aug 2014
This review is from: The Civil War: Together with the Alexandrian War, the African War, and the Spanish War (Classics) (Paperback)
Interesting read, enjoyable to see how Caesar presents his own life. Was he his own spin doctor?
