Why do you think the "Seven Commentaries on the Gallic War" was written? Suggest one theory cocnerning the book and to support your theory through examples from the book should be used.
PLEASE HELP! i've tried other websites and I cant get a lot of information! HELP!
Why do presidents write their memoirs? To record a biased version of history and improve their standing. I suspect Caesar was not much different. Of course, like the presidents of late, he often blamed others for things that went badly.
Julius Caesar probably had several reasons for writing this commentary.
* He wanted everyone to know about how great he was and how he conquered Gaul.
* He was ambitious and hoped the book would promote his political career.
* He wanted history to know about how he conquered Gaul.
Which theory appeals to you?
