Caesar: Life of a Colossus by Adrian Goldsworthy
Narrated by: Fred Major
“Hail, Caesar!” they still cry in the movies as once they saluted in the heart of ancient Rome and on battlefields from Gaul to Syria.
Julius Caesar – general, consul, dictator – is one of the most magnetic and controversial figures in all of history. Few have matched his power, his military and political genius, his glory – and his infamy. He raised an empire, and destroyed a democratic republic. Many look for lessons in his story today.
British historian Adrian Goldsworthy is out with an acclaimed new biography of the man proclaimed a god in the Roman Senate, and killed in the Roman Senate.
