    Please recommend a biography of Caesar

    My eighth grade son will be taking Henle II this fall. In the course materials a biography of Julius Caesar is recommended but not required. I have a couple in mind, but would like recommendations from those of you that may be able to recommend one that your similar aged child enjoyed. He likes to read and has a fair knowledge of Roman history (FMOR and The Book of the Romans, and all the Forms series). I think he will love it if I find the right book. He is a 13 year old boy, so he would be more interested in Caesar the soldier and statesman, rather than anything involving Cleopatra, or anyone's wives.

    Hello.

    Martin's favorite one is out of print, but it is called Caesar, A Sketch by James Anthony Froude. Maybe it is on Project Gutenberg?

      Here it is on Project Gutenberg. You can glance through it here and see if it's a good fit: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/8425/8425-h/8425-h.htm

        Great question! We are starting Henle 2 as well this year. I found it online for $13!
