Amazing in historical detail, with useful maps and drawings. Real life and people sometimes make better stories than plain fiction and Caesar is one of the best books on the subject I’ve read. Some fiction amongst the facts makes this a literary experience certainly worth one’s while. Minus half a star for the beginning, which was a bit slow, but once I’d struggled through the first 200 pages I suddenly found myself hooked. I was impressed by the way the persons of Caesar and Pompey were depicted, and also by the way McCullough managed to write through the war of Gaul and make it interesting, too. Can't wait to read October Horse!
