Publisher's Summary

Contained here is Julius Caesar's own account of his military adventures in Gaul at the head of the Roman army, uniquely presented in Caesar's first-person perspective (rather than as a third-person narrative as in the original Latin). Included are seven sections ("books") of the Gallic War, each encompassing one year of Caesar's battles and intrigues; though there is an eighth book, it is generally accepted to have been written by another general, shortly after Caesar's death in 44 BCE.
This production is based on a translation of the work by W.A. McDevitte and W.S. Bohn published in New York in 1869.

Students, here is a good one!

Disclaimers: I am not in the military and I do not live in Europe. I got this book from a friend.
It seems like a couple of millennia since I studied Latin, but who can forget "All Gaul is divided..."? I don't know if partially translating this work is still part of modern curricula, but I ASSume that studying this work is required reading in most military programs and certainly in archaeology and ancient history studies.
This translation seems eminently readable and easily understood (preferably with a map of Europe at hand to make correlation of data more fully assimilated). Current maps make the studies more real and interesting despite the time difference.
If this book is on your required list, you are in luck if you choose this version narrated by Jack Chekijian. While it is true that he performs (as usual) in lecture mode, it is unlikely that you will fall asleep if you follow some simple, logical steps. 1. Give it a first listen at a comfortably quick speed for an overview. 2. Next, listen to it at recorded speed with notebook (proven method to better retention of data) and(if possible) maps at hand. There will be adequate time to write notes and no stop/rewind/restart nonsense. I enjoyed this trip to the past.

Julius Caesar

What does Jack Chekijian bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He narrated the book quite well.

Any additional comments?

The audiobook and the story itself is very helpful to students of this subject matter.

Horrendous reading voice

The material is fine (having read it myself) however the narration is totally, heinously awful. It's like listening to the old text-to-speech computer voices from the late 90's early 2000's.

Don't touch with a barge pole! I'm going to seek a refund.
