Originally published in 1956, this book presents a concise account regarding the Commentaries of Julius Caesar, written by the renowned Cambridge classical historian Sir Frank Adcock (1886–1968). The text begins by discussing the form and purpose of the Commentaries, before moving on to their relationship with Caesar's personality and his interpretation of military conflict. Later chapters offer answers in response to the scholarly debate surrounding Caesar's writings and summarise other works relating to his campaigns. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in ancient history and the works of Caesar.
