    Ronald Syme's " The Roman Revolution"

    Another book you may want to consider is The Last Generation of the Roman Republic by Eric Gruen (Thank you MPC). It was written as a counter to The Roman Revolution. Syme paints a picture of a system of government that is dysfunctional and doomed. Gruen offers a different view by presenting perhaps THE most thoroughly researched view of Late Republican legislation essentially saying it wasn't preordained to failure and was functioning quite fine (though with the occasional hiccup).
  2. HAHAHA...I'm a little behind the times on this classic response.
  3. That was actually pretty good...As a none german speaker and was forced to learn Westerwald I can relate..!

    Caesar: Hero Or Villain

    The sack of Rome in 390BC was never far from the back of Rome's collective mind. Gaul was seen as primitive, volatile, turbulent, and its conquest was seen as a positive step by ordinary Romans. Eventually Gaul became the jewel in the crown of the western roman empire.
  6. And not only that, wasn't he noted at the time for his moderation,(after achieving supremacy)? The more power that he accrued the less he exercised it.

    Specifically Julius Caesar

    Isn't the idea of empire inclusion? And how ethically did he mistreat his army?

    C. Cato

    That's a bold statement. True according to whom? Probably his mortal inimicus Cicero, and if so does that make it true? Perhaps its time to dedicate a thread to Clodius, his history, character, and acts. This may take time for me to compose so bare with me.
  13. The Romans were mostly significantly outnumbered. As I believe Tigranes scoffed at Luculus' army, "To large to be an embassy, to small to be an army." Luculus' army went on to kick his proverbial butt. Are you saying that 300 Romans could have held off the Persians? Luculus was outnumbered but had several thousand men. Not at all, men are men and 300 spartans/romans would still have had the same result. But there wasn't just 300 spartans there, in total there was around 5000 for the battles. Most of the greeks were dismissed by Leonidas once they knew the game was over but I think 700 thespians elected to stay anyway. All I was saying was in most encounters we find the romans out manned, just not outclassed.
