Senate in Italy Spain and Greece Caesar's commentaries written in famously simple prose with the distinctive use of the third person offer a uniue opportunity to read the victor's version of events. Caesar through his own and others' accounts comes off as an unbelievably merciful general; he pardoned nearly everyone that came into his power including his eventual assassins Cassius and Brutus I could only find one instance concerning a certain Ligarius during the African War where he executed a fellow citizen but the soldier in uestion had been pardoned previously This book was written to detail the events of his face off with Pompey and when the latter was killed by the Egyptians Caesar was upset that he didn't get to pardon him and it is written in high style; Cicero described the commentaries as nude figures and indeed the ones written by Caesar are Unfortunately Caesar was busy having sex with Cleopatra so someone else wrote the account of the Alexandrian War; not a nude figure in marble but perhaps in clay Then there is an account of the African War; not even a clay figure this time like a dirt figure Lastly to close the collection we have the Spanish War which isn't even a figure it's just a pile of dirt; unreadable Nevertheless Caesar and his ghostwriters provide an invaluable and for the most part enjoyable linear history of how the dictator perpetuus secured his power abroad only to return home and be betrayed by a couple of philosophers who completely failed to read the will of the people not to mention the will of Caesar he had left all his money to the people of Rome

Alea iacta est the die is cast Julius Caesar upon crossing the Rubicon according to Suetonius Caesar continues his narrative from the Bello Gallico into another several books of commentaries on his civil war with Pompey the Great and the Roman Senate Caesar does not dwell long on the causes of the civil war but rests that point upon saying that his rights and honor had been violated and his attempts to find a compromise and he did attempt were met with a declaration by the senate that he would be considered a traitor and force against him by Pompey who was extra legally made sole consul authorized should he not comply The commentaries follow in their usual style; gripping and vivid clean and descriptive that highlight of Caesar's brilliant tactics his daring disposition to fortune fortune favors the bold after all and his great clemency to his fellow Romans including allowing an entire army in Hispania to return home after surrendering their arms and pardoning Pompeian senator and commander he captured even pardoning the same obstinate patricians than once he pardoned Cassius the future chief conspirator behind his assassination three times Ultimately the Civil War ends with a delicious cliffhanger as one finds Caesar in Egypt after his climactic victory over Pompey in Greece searching for his fugitive rival when he finds himself drawn into yet another war
