Caesar’s war in Gaul

This is a reblog of an an excellent article written by David Xu on Caesar’s war in Gaul which is considered his greatest conquest.

No man in history defined their civilization quite like Julius Caesar did for Rome. In many ways Caesar was the quintessential Roman: proud, ambitious, charismatic, daring, and a masterful politician. He also possessed qualities that fostered resentment among the Republic and accelerated the transition of Rome into an Empire, being the first to claim the title of Roman Dictator for a decade.
