In 58 BC, Julius Caesar pushed north from Rome into the unruly lands of the barbarians. Less than eight years later, the empire extended all the way to the Atlantic, and Roman Legions were making incursions into Britain. The key to Caesar's victory lay not in the superiority of the Roman war machine but in his mastery of strategy, tactics, discipline, and military engineering. According to Plutarch, Caesar's campaign resulted in 800 conquered cities, 300 subdued tribes, a million slaves, and 3-million dead on the battlefield--all this, not to mention becoming First Man in Rome

El Cid( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Though his name was Rodrigo Diaz, he was known simply as El Cid (The Leader). Yet recent scholarship has exposed many gaps between truth and myth in the tales about Spain's first national hero. Was he, as one contemporary said, 'the scourge of his time'? Or are the tales recorded in the epic Poema de Mio Cid a more accurate picture of this unique man? The Conquerors visits his homeland in Valencia and interviews renowned historians in search of the real El Cid."--Web site
