It takes the first book of Caesars Commentarii de Bello Gallico (Gallic War), then breaks it down into individual sentences.Each sentence is presented in Latin, then in word-for-word English (look for the / symbols to see where the Latin word breaks lie), then finally in natural English. In the case of Caesar, largely because his sentences can be extremely complex, the natural English is frequently almost identical to the word-for-word English.The Latin text given here is suitable for experienced students with at least two years of Latin, although you should know that we have simplified Caesars Latin word order so that it more closely matches the order seen in English. We have also eliminated some of Caesars extensive and complicated parenthetical asides so that the whole text flows more easily.Regardless, this is still a challenging text that exercises all forms of Latin, and so requires a strong command of the language.Also available in this series: Perseus Made Easy and Hercules Made Easy, for beginner and intermediate respectively.
