Caesar placed each of his five generals ahead of a legion and detailed his quaestor to command the remaining legion, so that every soldier might know that there was a high officer in a position to observe the courage with which he conducted himself, and then led the right wing first into action, because he had noticed that the enemy's line was weakest on that side.
A must read book for anybody interested in ancient history!
As with most ancient works, the reader needs to be somewhat aware of the exaggeration that takes place, as the Romans always seem to be facing incredible odds.
Julius Caesar was one of the greatest military and political minds who ever lived.

I was surprised to find it so readable, even if Caesar's account of things must be taken with skepticism. Smooth, flowing translationPublished 12 months ago by John J. Hurt
