Publisher's Summary

Since the Renaissance, Julius Caesar has been idolized as a superman. There is no doubt that Caesar was an extraordinary man. But as General Fuller points out, Caesar was more extraordinary for his reckless ambition, matchless daring, and ruthless tyranny than for his skills as a military commander. Caesar continually had to extricate himself from the results of mistaken judgments. His unpremeditated Gallic conquest was just one of Fuller's many examples. In telling Caesar's history, Fuller illuminates a century of Roman history as well, bringing to life Caesar's wars, his armies, his equipment, and his methods. Brilliant in design and impressive in scope, Julius Caesar clarifies how the military, political, and economic aspects of the Roman Republic worked together to produce a man whose name has come down to us as a synonym for absolute authority.

Top notch

Fuller's background as a military man enriches this biography. Most historians have a shaky grasp of military tactics and strategy and tend to gloss over or sometimes even misunderstand the import of Caesar's actions. Fuller interprets Caesar from the viewpoint of one who fully understands the military mind.

An excellent listen. Audible, please make the rest of Fuller's books available!

Render unto Caeser that which is Caesers

I love history and after listening to Juilius Caeser it only confirmed my love for the past. This is a terrific read and how it is laided out before you and how it is painted upon your mind will delight you as you take on this life that was Caesers !!!

It will show to you that man was very intelligent in Caesers day, and not some knuckle dragging neanderthal. Look at what we have and use today from the Romans; roads, sewers, water systems, criminal law, military functions, justice, federal laws, government to name only a few!!

Come and join Caeser and live in his sandals for a few hours. Hail to you listener of Audible Books !!! :)
