Reviews

The battle of Alesia was a decisive moment in world History. Failure would have been a defeat for Caesar not just in Gaul, but at Rome, and without this victory, Rome might never have become a worldwide power. * All About History *
It is clear that the authors know what they are talking about. * Miniature Wargames - William de Pretre *
The photographic section is a definite highlight...a good account of one of the most decisive battles of the ancient world. * War History Online *
If you are looking for a more in-depth narrative of the campaign and its protagonists, the place of this battle in history and its long term impact I would certainly recommend this book for your collection. * Society of Ancients newsletter *
Those seeking a primer on Alesia need look no further than this excellent book. * Military History Magazine *
Caesar's Greatest Victory... is scholarly but ultimately readable, and introduces a campaign which is left out of secondary school and Latin teaching... A fascinating account of something I'd never heard of. * Books Monthly *
