Commentarii de Bello Gallico

A 1783 edition of The Gallic Wars.

Commentarii de Bello Gallico is Roman General Julius Caesar's third-person account of his nine years of war in Gaul. The Latin title, literally Commentaries about the Gallic War, is often retained in English translations of the book, and the title is also translated to About the Gallic War, Of the Gallic War, On the Gallic War, The Conquest of Gaul, and The Gallic War. Its famous opening line is "All Gaul has been divided into three parts."

The Gallic War in AtlantisEdit

The Gallic War proved critical to Britain's ultimate victory in Atlantis during the mid 18th century conflict. After French commander Roland Kersauzon retreated into Nouveau Redon, English Colonel Charles Cornwallis was determined that the fort should fall. Summoning his ancient history, Cornwallis remembered the fate of the Gallic fortress of Uxellodunum, and how it was ultimately taken. Like the Gallic fortress, Nouveau Redon's primary water source was a spring within its walls. Cornwallis proposed to Atlantean Major Victor Radcliff that the spring be cut off at its source. Much as Uxellodunum fell some 1800 years before, so fell Nouveau Redon.

The Gallic War in the Videssos SeriesEdit

After Julius Caesar's conquest of Gaul, he wrote his commentaries. The presumed massacre of a scouting column of three cohorts did not seem worth mentioning.[1]
