    ... etreius reinforcing Pompey or invading Transalpine Gaul Caesar in person led a force of six legions against them(Cary 271). The Pompeian army had firmly entrenched itself in a prepared position at Ilerda in the valley of the Sicoris, which he could not hope to storm without heavy losses, and he got into serious difficulties through shortage of supplies and the spring flooding of the river. Caesar used his Gallic cavalry to dislodge his enemies, by cutting off their supplies; he headed off their retreat to the Ebro by sustained hard marching. Caesar then threw up a field-works around a steep but waterless hill on which they had taken refuge and the Pompeians were impelled to surrender the ...

    Who was the better general, Caesar or Pompey? Most would agree that Caesar was by far the better general, simply based upon the outcome of the Roman Civil War of 49 BC to 46 BC.

Pompey had proven himself, with the defeat of Spratacus, in the slave revolt. And against Mithridates in the glamorous Eastern Command, but was Pompey deserving of the fame and recognition he gained?

  • How Julius Caesar Changed Rome - 963 words
    How Julius Caesar Changed Rome the ill P Gaius Julius Caesar helped establish the vast Roman Empire. Caesar's triumph in a civil war in the 40s BC made him the absolute ruler of Rome. Caesar was neither good nor bad, rather, he was a force of change. His folly was ambition, for when he took power the way to advance changed so drastically that the other Romans ambitions were thwarted, which lead to political jealousies among his opponents and his assassination. Caesar's rise to power obliterated the traditional way of attaining high office in Rome. When Caesar 'became' the Republic, he inadvertently created new needs: a need to be among Caesar's circle of friends, a need to feel important in ...

    Julius Caesar William Shakespeare lived from 1564 to 1616. During his time, he wrote and established many plays. Although he lived about 400 years ago, his themes still have proven their universality today. A good example of this is in the play, Julius Caesar. One of the themes in this play is that there are many methods of manipulation, that persuade and influence people into a certain direction, sometimes too quickly, without thought. Shakespeare distorts the views of people to show that commoners or plebeians in the play, tend to change their minds without thought or consideration. An example of that occurs in the play within the beginning on a street in Rome. The Romans are gathered to c ...
