Item description for Julius Caesar (Life &Times S.) (Life&Times) by Nigel Cawthorne...
Gaius Julius Caesar (100 - 44 BC) was no great military genius, but a skilful orator, who could rally and inspire his men. His conquests however, spread Roman law, customs and language throughout Europe and secured the ascendancy of its empire for five hundred years. He himself ascribed his victories to two things - luck and leadership. In his Commentaries on the Gallic War, written in the third person, he said: 'The situation was critical and as no reserves were available, Caesar seized a shield from a soldier in the rear and made his way to the front line. He addressed each centurion by name and shouted encouragement to the rest of the troops, ordering them to push forward and open their ranks so they could use their swords more easily. His coming gave them fresh heart and hope. Each man wanted to do his best under the eyes of this commander despite the peril.'
