    It is a marvel that this text has made it through the centuries Written during the last days of the Roman Republic, a young Julius Caesar makes his impact on the German and Gallic tribes His early invasion of Britain to the final siege of Alesia, a great story of Roma...

    We had to read this in second year high school Latin in the original Of course, the text was modernized in ways which would have perplexed the author s It had punctuation, distinguished between upper and lower cases in accord with established rules, included diacriticals to facilitate pronunciation and had copious notes to help us with the difficult words and concepts It is the only authentic Latin text I have ever read completely with understanding Only two years of language were required and I was terrible at grammar incapable of remembering conjugations for than a couple of hours of cramming for an exam Years later, in college, I tried Kepler in Latin as a bedtime read, but failed to get than the gist of it Now all that remains is some vocabulary.I got through Latin classes with grades of B, C and D my worst performance in any subject, rivalled only by A.P Chemistry And these were charity grades The teachers of L...

    I thought this book was just okay While it was interesting to have Caesar s first hand account of his victories and travels, the bias was often overpowering, and his attempts to paint a picture of his bravado and heroism seemed conceited and honestly a little desperate The writing itself was often dry and the content sometimes needed additional explanation, which was supplied by footnotes and an excellent ...
