Yenne not only analyzes Caesar's military career, but also compares specific battles to ones that occurred during different periods in history, from Alexander's conquests to the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. It was a truly fascinating book, and one that I couldn't put down. I'm rather knowledgeable about Caesar, but this book approached his military (and political) actions in a new way. It examined military theory and strategy rather than only giving simple descriptions of Caesar's battles (albeit the descriptions were excellent). I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in Caesar, ancient military history, or how ancient military theory and strategy compare to today's modern warfare.
For any student of Roman history and all history buffs of any era, Yenne's "Julius Caesar" is a concise, comprehensive and easily read account of the accomplishments, the life and times of one of the world's true military/political geniuses.
