Book Discussion: Caesar's Commentaries: On The Gallic War and On The Civil War by Julius Caesar
There was a time when Latin was a widespread educational rite of passage starting with "Veni, vidi, vici." This discussion will focus on the English translation of the Commentaries by Julius Caesar, one of the most important persons of his age, some would say second only to Jesus Christ. Caesar's Commentaries are required reading at U.S. Service Academies, where they are still considered relevant even in this high-tech, jet, drone, smart bomb, guided-missiles age. This classic is both enlightening and absorbing.
