CAESAR OBSESSED:Passion, Conquest, And Tragedy In Gaul – During Julius Caesar’s famed conquest of Gaul, the Roman army was frequently raided by marauding Germanic warriors. Angered by these persistent attacks, Caesar built the first bridge on record over the Rhine River-in only ten days- and conducted a brief but devastating invasion of Germania.
That’s what history records. Caesar Obsessed by Anthony R. Licata offers an engrossing alternative tale of what really happened. Caesar pursues a dalliance with the lovely Devorra, who is being held as a Roman hostage. But Devorra has promised herself to the powerful warrior Gabinier. A completing cast of character, real and imagined, surrounds Caesar as he ruthlessly advances his political power amidst the challenges of human frailty and desire. Bloddy clashes on the battlefield, dangerous romantic entanglements, and precarious alliances colored by political intrigue trigger a thrilling mix of risks and consequences that threaten to derail Casesar’s ultimate quest-to rule the Roman Empire.
