Caesars Commentaries on the Gallic War starts with an account of Gaul and goes on to cover Caesars defeat of first the Helvetians and then the Germans under Ariovistus. The Introduction to this edition of the Latin text, gives background information on the Rome of Caesars time, on Caesar himself and on the composition and relaibility of his commentaries, on Gaul, and on the Roman Army. Useful Notes on the text, Index of names, and a Vocabulary are all included.
This book is very well put together. The glossary at the back is very helpful especially because there are words which werent taught in first year Latin.
