One of history’s most monumental figures, the Roman politician and general Julius Caesar played a critical role in the events that led to the demise of the Roman Republic and the rise of the Roman Empire. A celebrated author of Latin prose, Caesar wrote detailed accounts of his military campaigns, composed in a vigorous, concise and unemotional style in the third person. These invaluable historical sources provide an engaging window into the world of the Roman army during the Republican. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Latin texts. This comprehensive eBook presents Julius Caesar’s complete extant works, with illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 2)
