The Civil War: 50-48 B.C. | [Julius Caesar]

The Civil War: 50-48 B.C.

The Civil War is Julius Caesar's account of the years of turmoil during which he battled Pompey the Great for control of Rome. The third member of their ruling First Triumvirate - Crassus - had been killed waging war in Syria while Caesar was in Gaul extending the empire to the shores of the English Channel. The jealous joint-ruler Pompey intimidated the Senate into ordering Caesar to disband his army, but Caesar refused and crossed the Rubicon into Roman territory, effectively declaring war on Pompey, the Senate, and Rome itself.

Audible Editor Reviews

In The Civil War: 50-48 B.C., Larry McKeever makes ancient history accessible for modern-day listeners. His voice is inviting and measured, making the conflicts herein seem current. McKeever moves through the material with a staccato energy.

In this volume, Julius Caesar documents Rome's internal affairs with precision. Ceasar described his facetious relationship with Pompey the Great, and how he fought Pompey to gain power over Rome. In this remarkable account, Ceasar not only explains what happened, but also why he (and not Pompey) should prevail as ruler. History buffs will find this audiobook irresistible.

    "Wrong file. This is Bruce Cattons US Civil War"

    Goof ball Audible has the wrong file. Three emails and phone call over a month and Audible still hasn't fixed it.
