Julius Caesar has proved himself a brilliant general. But when he returns to Rome he lays down arms only to take up another battle: this time for political power. This is a war waged with words, plots, schemes, metaphotical assassinations - but also with seduction and guile. Love is just another weapon in Caesar's political arsenal, for the key to political glory lies with Rome's noblewomen: powerful, vindictive Servilia, whose son Brutus deeply resents his mother's passionate, destructive relationhshiop with Caesar; Rome's revered Vestal Virgins; and even Caesar's own daughter, sacrificed on the altar of his ambition.Read Less

This Is The Story Of Gaius Julius Caesar's Rise To Prominence In His World, Beginning With His Return To Rome In 68 B. B Prepared To Dominate A New Battlefield-the Roman Forum.
This book certainly explains why Caesar's soldiers used to chant, "We bring you the bald adulterer. Lock up your wives and daughters." It is an engrossing story and helps to explain why Caesar was well hated as well as loved.

This is part of a series called the Masters of Rome which documents and fleshes out the life of Julius Cesar. The value of these books in understanding how the life of this man influenced life today is remarkable. It is challenging to keep the many characters in place, but once through the series prompts many readers to go back and read it again and perhaps again. I am on the third time through the series. If you like historical novels that are true to history that influenced our times, this series is a must read.
