The Gallic War
Author: Julius Caesar
The Conquest of Gaul
Author: Julius Caesar, W. A. MacDevitt
Publisher: Digireads.com Publishing
First published just before the end of the Roman Republic by that legendary country's most immortalized leader, "The Conquest of Gaul," also called "Commentarii de Bello Gallico," is an account of Julius Caesar's capture of Gaul in the first century. Beginning with the Helvetian War in 58 BC, Caesar uses his exemplary Latin prose to explain how his forces were protecting Provence, and how they were later drawn out in campaigns against the Veneti, the Aquitani, numerous Germanic peoples, the Belgae, the Gauls, and the Bretons. Caesar, perhaps in defense of his expensive and geographically vast wars, explains the methods of his campaigns, from the timing of the seasons to provisioning and defense. This autobiographical work is both a concise reckoning of forces and an informative wartime narrative, consistently revealing the author as a politically brilliant commander and an unrivaled man.

Caesar in Gaul and Rome
Author: Andrew M. Riggsby
Publisher: University of Texas Press
Anyone who has even a passing acquaintance with Latin knows "Gallia est omnis divisa in partes tres" ("All Gaul is divided into three parts"), the opening line of De Bello Gallico, Julius Caesar's famous commentary on his campaigns against the Gauls in the 50s BC. But what did Caesar intend to accomplish by writing and publishing his commentaries, how did he go about it, and what potentially unforeseen consequences did his writing have? These are the questions that Andrew Riggsby pursues in this fresh interpretation of one of the masterworks of Latin prose. Riggsby uses contemporary literary methods to examine the historical impact that the commentaries had on the Roman reading public. In the first part of his study, Riggsby considers how Caesar defined Roman identity and its relationship to non-Roman others. He shows how Caesar opens up a possible vision of the political future in which the distinction between Roman and non-Roman becomes less important because of their joint submission to a Caesar-like leader. In the second part, Riggsby analyzes Caesar's political self-fashioning and the potential effects of his writing and publishing the Gallic War. He reveals how Caesar presents himself as a subtly new kind of Roman general who deserves credit not only for his own virtues, but for those of his soldiers as well. Riggsby uses case studies of key topics (spatial representation, ethnography, virtus and technology, genre, and the just war), augmented by more synthetic discussions that bring in evidence from other Roman and Greek texts, to offer a broad picture of the themes of national identity and Caesar's self-presentation.
Latin for the New Millennium

Author: Francis W. Kelsey, Rex Stem
Francis W. Kelsey was Professor of Latin at the University of Michigan from 1889 until his death in 1927. His popular school commentary on Caesar's Gallic War appeared in twenty-one editions in his lifetime. The expanded edition revised and reprinted here first appeared in 1918. This new edition offers the intermediate/advanced Latin student everything he or she needs in order to be able to read Caesar's Gallic War: the complete Latin text of Books 1-5 and 6.11-24, a grammatical commentary, a Latin-English vocabulary, a Latin grammar cross-referenced to the usage of Caesar, and twelve colour maps illustrating Caesar's campaigns and battles. No other book provides such completeness or such depth in helping students to read Caesar's Latin with proficiency and confidence. from Preface by Rex Stem This project was undertaken for the simple reason that I wanted to have undergraduate students of Latin read widely from Caesar's Commentaries on the Gallic War and no commentary is in print from which I might do so. Commentaries on individual books of the Gallic War are available . . . but nothing that presents multiple books in their entirety for college level instruction. Rather than reinvent the wheel, I am bringing back into print the best of the older school commentaries on the Gallic War, namely that published in 1918 by Francis W. Kelsey. The excellence of Kelsey's work is due to its rigor and completeness. Not only is the student presented with the complete text of over five (of the seven Caesarian) books of the Gallic War, but he or she also encounters a thorough grammatical (and sometimes historical) commentary, a complete Latin-English vocabulary for all the selections included, and an extensive Latin grammar keyed to the usage of Caesar (which also incorporates a description of the relevant geography and the military terms and practices of Caesar's time). The intermediate to advanced Latin student in a contemporary college classroom thus finds herein all he or she needs to make rapid progress in accurately comprehending Caesar's Latinity and narrative style. No other materials are needed.
