Another superb book on roman history by Dando-Collins.Very readable,informative and entertaining.
The subject of the end of the Roman republic has been written about many times by excellent historians(Tom Holland's Rubicon
& A J Langguth's Noise of War) and written very well .This book is no exception and brings a new angle to the subject as regards religious customs and their influence.This book is a very good example of narrative history and reads like a novel.
It's well worth the price

Sorry, I didn't find this book at all readable. Little analysis of the sources and previous studies, just pontificating references to how 'other authors' have got it wrong (who?, why are they wrong?). Seemingly arbitrary acceptance and rejection of different sources when they give alternate versions. Basically what I'd expect from a first-year essay!

Ive read quite a bit about this period of history, this book took you through the process leading to the murder Ceaser was a military leader and not political.
In the end his own self confidence and arrogance is what really killed him.
Great book I felt as if I was a part of the process
