The Death of Caesar

Editorial reviews

The Death of Caesar

Strauss handles the actual action of the assassination with aplomb, even though it’s a familiar tale. But it’s the part of the story that sets up the assassination and the aftermath that mark THE DEATH OF CAESAR as an impressive and necessary work.

Strauss made his mark as a military historian in books like “The Battle of Salamis” and “The Spartacus War,” and he’s strongest here when tracking Caesar’s army units in the days after the assassination.
