This review is from: The Gallic War: Seven Commentaries on The Gallic War with an Eighth Commentary by Aulus Hirtius (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
"My account of how I saved Rome from the terrible Gauls by C. Julius Caesar". Spin was not invented in the 21st century, Caesar did a great job as his own spin doctor, these are a translation of his published "memoirs" from his campaigns in Gaul, written carefully to appeal to the Roman audience, but not so exaggerated that they could be decried as rubbish. Very interesting read, providing insight into the Roman viewpoint of the Gallic Wars. Interesting and informative Classical history, Julius Caesar and the Roman Republic.
