Caesar's campaign in Egypt, from the autumn of 48 B.C. to March of 47 B.C., was a self-contained episode in the career of Rome's greatest general. This description of the events at Alexandria forms a continuous narrative that represents Latin at its clearest, devoid of the artificiality that often makes Latin historical writing so difficult for those who are not experts. Along with a simplicity of language and a narrative that is focused and interesting, the book includes an informative introduction covering Caesar's career, the war in Alexandria, and the style of Caesar and Hirtius, who is believed to have completed Caesar's writing on the subject. Insightful commentary and extensive vocabulary also are included in the volume.
