Subject: Story of Julius Caesar. From crossing the Rubicon to the Ides of March, this book follows the rise of Caesar in Rome and on the Empire's battlefields to the point where he must be toppled. '...narrated by the imperator's protege, the 'other Brutus.' The author cleverly inserts his narrator at the center of Roman intrigue by assigning him the overextended Clodia as a lover and the undistinguished but sly young Octavian as a catamite.' (J Hawking) --- The Roman general Decimus Junius Brutus, a close friend of Julius Caesar's, was also a conspirator against him on the ides of March, and in his memoirs, he tries to justify his decision by accusing Caesar.
