From Spain to Gaul to Britain and back to Rome
This is the third book in the series of four and continues at tremendous pace. Caesar is posted to Spain by his political rivals who, rightly, see him as a threat.
He is successful in his Iberian adventure, but returns to Rome in time for the consular elections. Following his election to high office, the means of which is highly amusing, he cannot sit still for long and soon leaves Crassus and Pompey in charge so that he can take his armies to Gaul to spread the benefits of the Roman culture. Eventually, he makes it into Britain, but that ambitious move is just a stretch too far for the already extended Roman armies.
Many new characters are introduced in this book, both friends an enemies. Some of these are destined to become very influential in the close circle that forms around the most powerful man in Europe of that time. Brutus starts to become dangerously jealous whenever Caesar shows any favour to others, such as Mark Anthony. You can see where it's headed as the story steams at full speed towards the fourth, and final, book!
