Julius Caesar (c. 100-44 BCE) dominated the Roman Republic with his political acumen and military might. Thankfully for us, he was aware of his own importance and wrote a detailed autobiography about his rise to power. These “War Commentaries” covered the Gallic War, the Civil War, the Alexandrian War, the African War and the Spanish War. Here are ten great quotes from Julius Caesar’s War Commentaries or his other biographers.
