    PDF 19th century.co · Caesar PDF Ù caesar book, Caesar MOBIWe are fortunate in that Caesar's life was well documented during his own lifetime by Caesar himself and by Cicero amongst others and by historians living not long after such as Dio So this account draws on a wide range of sources and is expertly narratedYou can't help but be overawed by how much Caesar achieved in his action packed life and how he did so without the logistics communications and infrastructure that we take so much for granted in the modern world The author dwells on his impressive leadership ualities which included a reticence to punish his enemi

    PDF 19th century.co · Caesar PDF Ù caesar book, Caesar MOBIThis is a well written superbly researched and for the most part very entertaining account of the life and times of Julius Caesar The writing conveys some sense of what life must have been like as a Roman with ambition over 2000 years ago and explains why Caesar's life and death continue to capture the imagination to this dayAdrian Goldsworthy has presented here a broadly positive case for Caesar and his accomplishments as a military leader and as a successful politician of his times It is said that all political careers end in failure and to be murdered by one's own side can hardly ultimately be seen as anything elsebut the legend lives on and this book goes a long way to explaining whyWell worth reading

    PDF 19th century.co · Caesar PDF Ù caesar book, Caesar MOBISometimes history really is better than fiction And here Goldsworthy probably best known to most as the 'history bloke who appeared at the start of the TV series Rome' really digs into the background and life of Caesar A briliant general maybe but a womaniser who was sleeping with the wives of many other Roman Senators Some good 'trivia' backstories I loved the description of Mark Anthony being a respectable young Roman until he was introduced by a friend to wine and womenCaesar can often be mentioned in the same phrases with Hitler and then with Alexander Was he a tyrant or was he the man that might have made Rome even greater? His legacy is undeniable and this book is a fascinating read Excellent stuff
