    eBook Philip Freeman ´ ´ Julius Caesar ePUB Ù julius book, caesar free, Julius Caesar PDFEPUBExcellent biography thrilling narrative history The author is a great writer and this book reads like fast paced adventure Julius Caesar had an amazing life and left behind an incredible legacy This is a fair and balanced chronicle of Caesar's career and accomplishments The adventures plots and intrigues are clearly explained Even Caesar's enemies grudgingly admired his abilities and I believe most readers of this book will too Still there's no denying that he became a tyrant and by early 44 BCE it becomes clear he's gotta go I do wish the author had spent time on the relationship bet

    eBook Philip Freeman ´ ´ Julius Caesar ePUB Ù julius book, caesar free, Julius Caesar PDFEPUBThis is an easily read and enjoyable biography of Julius Caesar Up to this point I was mostly familiar with Julius Caesar from Shakespeare's play and mentions of him in other history books Those of you who read my reviews of history and biographies will be able to predict what criticism is coming Although the two maps at the beginning of the book are helpful especially the one of Gaul this book could have used maps Most of the book is about Caesar's battles and I would have liked to have had maps showing those battlesAfter reading this book I am not filled with the same admiration of Caesar that I had of Napoleon after reading about him Caesar comes across as mostly being a warrior Yes at the end there's a brief section talking about his other accomplishments such as putting into effect the calendar that we still use today and inventing a delicious salad Okay I'm joking about the second But I don't come out

    eBook Philip Freeman ´ ´ Julius Caesar ePUB Ù julius book, caesar free, Julius Caesar PDFEPUBPhilip Freeman's Julius Caesar is a comprehensive biography of the Roman conueror that is as straightforward and readable as the general's own Gallic Wars Freeman not only stitches together the various ancient accounts of Caesar's exploits but adds context to his activities by including helpful background information about his various adversaries pulled from a wealth of modern scholarship He recounts Caesar's conuest of the Celtic tribes of Gaul against a vivid tapestry of the Celtic culture gleaned from such works as Rankin's Celts and the Classical World Cunliff's The Ancient Celts and Green's The World of the Druids I especially found the defeats or near defeats suffered at the hands of the Celts as fascinating as Caesar's famou

    eBook Philip Freeman ´ ´ Julius Caesar ePUB Ù julius book, caesar free, Julius Caesar PDFEPUBA clear concise and insightful biography Freeman casts Caesar as a misunderstood figure and asserts that Caesar owed his political and military accomplishments to the plebians and that this was what earned him the hostility of the patricians He ably Freeman fleshes out Caesar as a warrior who led from the front and was able to rally his troops just by getting into the action and shaming them by doing so Freeman provides a good account of the triumvirate and the civil war where again he gives us vivid examples of Caesar winning the unlikeliest of victories and Freeman has a good grasp of Rome’s political world The narrative itself is dramatic and well paced In all this is mostly a favorable treatment of the man A clearer picture of the plot to kill Caesar would have helped But in all a smooth readable well written biography

    eBook Philip Freeman ´ ´ Julius Caesar ePUB Ù julius book, caesar free, Julius Caesar PDFEPUBI love it when some of the best writing in classical studies comes from professors at smaller colleges like Philip Freeman who hails from Luther College in Iowa This is the second book by Freeman that I've read and I enjoy his books not only for their scholarship but their wonderful sense of narrative Here his subject is another ambitious and brilliant military strategist whose deeds shaped the world we live in What really surprised me in reading this though is how much I didn't know about Julius CaesarI assumed that he came from a noble family but hadn’t realized how prestigious it was though in decline for some time impoverished and on the margins of Roman power That he grew up in a low class neighborhood of Rome called Suburba from whence comes our word suburb a grimy gritty area known for its tradesmen prostitutes an

    eBook Philip Freeman ´ ´ Julius Caesar ePUB Ù julius book, caesar free, Julius Caesar PDFEPUBThe book serves as a basic summary of the events of Caesar's life but Freeman does little to probe the man himself I suppose this could serve as a good introduction and Freeman writes in a readable style Granted there is not much material to try and probe into the personality and psychology of Caesar but I would have preferred the author attempt some inspired guesses Crucial uestions such
