From Western civilization¶s greatest empire came history¶s most gifted and accomplished man.Emerging from a society populated by powerful men with great ambitions, against a backdrop of social change and political upheaval, one man stood as a giant among men. Almost more than aman, he was an irresistible force of nature."Imperator ± The Life of Gaius Julius Caesar" by Philip Katz is a fictional recreation of the lifeof the greatest of all Romans, Gaius Julius Caesar. It is a personal memoir, the inside story of hisworld as viewed through his eyes, written in the first person, suppressed by Caesar¶s successors,only to be rediscovered in modern times.Born to one of Rome¶s most prestigious families, Caesar went on to conquer all of WesternEurope in the name of Rome. He then conquered Rome to liberate his countrymen from a corruptSenate. Caesar¶s energy, intellect, and desire for achievement brought him the jealousy andanimosity of his peers along with enormous political opposition. Ultimately, his fight against thecorrupt, political establishment and his quest for a more sustainable society brought him intodirect conflict with the ruling class of Rome.Gaius Julius Caesar begins writing his life story on the heels of the Alexandrian war whilespending some time on the Nile in the company of Cleopatra, Queen and Pharaoh of Egypt,reflecting on the halcyon days of his childhood that quickly gave way to smoldering hostilities between the great men of the state, followed by the burst into the conflagration of civil war.
 
 The lack of information about Caesar¶s early life makes these formative years of particular importance to the narrative as his character and motivations are placed in the context of recordedhistory.The reader is invited to step back two thousand years to witness the collapse of the Republic thatsubjugated the entire Mediterranean world but could not govern itself.With ³Imperator - The Life of Gaius Julius Caesar´ author Philip Katz creates an atmosphere inwhich ancient Rome comes back to life, seen through the eyes of the man who was the principleinstrument of fortune and change, Gaius Julius Caesar.

On the day of my birth, a great battle took place, a battle whose outcome would determineRome¶s fate for generations. Rome would fight for her life on this day, and the veterans of thisgreat battle would determine Rome¶s course in ways no one could have predicted. Thesubsequent events would bring a state of affairs no less threatening to the future and existence othe Roman Republic than the German Hoards were on this day.-As the sun rose over the province of Gaul, its heat drove the morning mist from the low lands,heralding a new day for two great opposing armies. Amid the trumpets calling the men to muster,was the sound of almost two hundred thousand grumbling ranker soldiers, screaming centurionsand cavalry calls, as the men of two great armies readied themselves for the new day.Cavalry units swarmed about the margins of the two camps, like flocks of birds, occasionallycoming into contact with each other disrupting their order and grace and replacing it, instead,with the sounds of steel and death.
