PART OF THE ACCLAIMED MASTERS OF ROME SERIES
Rome's leaders are frightened: the brilliant, ruthless Gaius Julius Caesar must be crushed before he can overthrow the government and become dictator. This magnificent novel opens in Gaul, scene of Caesar's magnificent victory over a fierce people. His conquest is in the name of Rome, but when the Senate refuse to give Caesar his due he marches upon his own country, an army prepared to die for him at his back. As Colleen McCullough's evocative, compelling portrayal draws us ever further into the powerful, dangerous and passionate world of ancient Rome, one figure emerges supreme: the extraordinary, tragic genius Caesar, a man who changed his world.
