Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Caesar (Paperback)
I bought this book with only vague, school boy knowledge of Julius Caesar. Goldsworthy briefly outlines roman history up till Caesars brith the goes into sharp, focused detail about his life and what shaped it.
One thing I particularly appreciated about Goldsworthy is his emphasis on not seeing historical narrative with a sense of inevitability, he points out time and again that Caesar could have easily failed!
If you have even a general interest in history then read this!!
