Read in January, 2009, read count: Once

While this volume is fascinating as far as providing material for analysis of Julius Caesar, its dubious status as both political propaganda and military documentation makes it uneven as a historical record. Far more useful for what it says about the mental state of Roman military leaders at the end of the republic than for objective details on the Gallic Wars themselves.
