reviewed The Young Caesar on
Fiction in the form of a memoir, Caesar looks back on his life on the eve of the Ides of March. We meet major characters and events leading up to his governorship of Gaul, but stops before his great conquests that led to his crossing the Rubicon and to a Roman Dictatorship.

Warner successfully captures the turbulent events of Caesar's youth and how they may have shaped him. Warner paints a believable portrait of Caesar.
