C., Case, David., Blackstone Audiobooks., PB Blackstone Audio PP [Ashland, Or.] YR 2007 SN 9780786150335 0786150335 AB Since the Renaissance, Julius Caesar has been idolized as a superman. There is no doubt that Caesar was an extraordinary man. But, as General Fuller points out, Caesar was extraordinary for his reckless ambition, matchless daring, and ruthless tyranny, rather than for his skills as a military commander. Caesar continually had to extricate himself from results of mistakes of judgment. His unpremeditated Gallic conquest is just one of Fuller's many examples. And in telling Caesar's history, Fuller illuminates a century of Roman history as well, bringing to life Caesar's wars, his armies, his equipment, and his methods. Brilliant in design and impressive in scope, Julius Caesar clarifies how the military, political, and economic aspects of the Roman Republic worked together to produce a man whose name has come down to us as a synonym for absolute authority.
