Description

Between 58 and 50BC Caesar conquered most of the area now covered by France, Belgium and Switzerland, and twice invaded Britain. This is the record of his campaigns. Caesar's narrative offers insights into his military strength and paints a picture of his encounters with the inhabitants of Gaul and Britain, as well as offering lively portraits of key characters such as the Gallic chieftains. "The Conquest of Gaul" can also be read as political propaganda as Caesar sets down his version of events for the Roman public, knowing that he faces possible civil war on his return to Rome.

Author Biography

Gaius Julius Caesar was born in 100 BC into an ancient patrician family. Much of his life was spent on military campaigns, & he returned to govern Rome as dictator. His dictatorship was declared perpetual in 44 BC, but his many bitter enemies hatched a conspiracy & assasinated him later that year. S. Handford translated a number of authors for Penguin, including Sallust and Aesop.
