He suppresses revolts in Northern Gaul and crosses the Rhine to deal with maurauding Germans, then pursues the chieftain Ambiorix into the Ardennes, leaving Q. Cicero (the orator's younger brother) at Arduatuca with the Fourteenth Legion where the camp is attacked and casualties inflicted by German forces. The central section contains a description of the customs of the northern Gauls and Germans, in particular the practices of Druidism.Full annotation on linguistic matters, and a comprehensive vocabulary, makes this book ideal for post-beginners tackling their first Latin prose, or preparing for examination.
