This book is a selection of twenty-four passages from books I-VII of Julius Caesar's "Gallic War", including the descriptions of the Britons, Druids and Germans. For each passage there is an English preface which places the passage in its context and discusses matters of importance raised by the passage. Endnotes with references to primary and secondary sources empower students to read further should they wish to do so. To facilitate reading of the Latin, for each passage there is a running vocabulary with grammatical notes and explanations. There is also a general introduction to the book as a whole, which contains sections on the nature of Caesar's "Commentarri" and "Commentarius" as a literary form, the time of composition and publication of the "Commentarii", Caesar's Gallic commands and the nomenclature of Gaul.
