In the late summer of 52 BC, Julius Caesar, Rome's most brilliant
general was pitted against the great Gallic chieftain Vercingetorix.
Fifty thousand Roman soldiers came face-to-face against a quarter of
a million Gallic warriors. For the first time, at a small hilltop
called Alesia in what is now central France, all Caesars's enemies
were gathered in one place. And Caesar won. Yet for 2,000 years
there's been only one explanation for his victory--his own. Does
evidence from the battlefield correspond with this account? The
battle that day shaped the map of modern Europe. How did Caesar do
it? Recent archaeological discoveries, systematic analysis of Roman
warfare, and extraordinary photographic evidence reveal the secrets
of Caesar's success.
