Caesars Bericht der Unterwerfung Galliens in den Jahren 58 bis 51 v.Chr. gehört zweifellos zu den populärsten Dokumenten der Antike. Es ging ihm vor allem darum, seine oft selbstherrlichen Maßnahmen zu rechtfertigen, die Argumente seiner politischen Gegner in Rom zu entkräften und Freunden wie Feinden seine glänzenden - wenngleich oft waghalsigen - militärischen Operationen darzulegen. Die unerreichte Schlichtheit des Stils und die Klarheit der Sprache lassen dabei den propagandistischen Zweck geschickt in den Hintergrund treten. Caesars Schilderungen von Sitten und Gewohnheiten, von Eigenschaften und Leistungen der Stämme Galliens, Germaniens und Britanniens sind gleichzeitig die ältesten zusammenhängenden Berichte über diese Volksgruppen, die uns überliefert sind, und bieten noch heute eine aufregende Lektüre. Die Ausgabe von Caesars Hauptwerk in der zweisprachigen Edition von Otto Schönberger enthält neben Text und Übersetzung umfassende Erläuterungen, Einführungen, ein Register und erschöpfende Literaturhinweise.

The Gallic War, published on the eve of the civil war which led to the end of the Roman Republic, is an autobiographical account written by one of the most famous figures of European history. On one level a straightforward narrative of the campaigns Caesar fought against the Gauls, Germans and Britons, it also serves a deeper political purpose, revealing him as a commander of breathtaking flair, courage and persistence - a man of the people, a man without rival. This new translation reflects the purity of Caesar's Latin while preserving the pace and flow of his momentous narrative of the conquest of Gaul and the first Roman invasions of Britain and Germany. The introduction includes a survey of Caesar's role and reputation in later thought, while detailed notes, maps, a table of dates, and glossary make this the most useful edition available. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.
