Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Civil Wars (Paperback)
This takes a bit of time to get going, but the central chapters (how do you solve a problem like Julius Caesar?) are really involving, particularly the terror and turmoil that followed his death. You also get a bit of Spartacus thrown in and some really useful notes.
My one bone to pick is that Appian left all the Egyptian elements to a different history, so if you're looking for Cleopatra and the final days of Mark Anthony, you won't find it here. So you don't get to see Octavian become Augustus and effectively end the Civil Wars. A pity.
