I don't really know how to comment on this book as it is essentially a text book. An excellent text, but a text none the less. It is filled with terrific detail and develops Caesar so that you understand his personality. The author makes sure you understand context, both political and cultural. I became especially impressed with Caesar's
attention to detail and his information gathering. It is not a quick read, but it is easy to understand the flow. I am glad to have read it.
