    1. Goge on said:

      Perfect series for all who are intrigued and owed with the old Rome and great man that was Gajus Julius Ceasar Conn Iggulden is taking us through the life, tastes, smells, blood and politics that shaped the world we know today Cesar was a brilliant man in a cruel world and with cruelty that matched that same world with ease At the same time, he was loved by the ones he turned into the deadliest force the world saw even long after he left this world These books also show us how hard life was back [...]

      From Spain to Gaul to Britain and back to RomeThis is the third book in the series of four and continues at tremendous pace Caesar is posted to Spain by his political rivals who, rightly, see him as a threat.He is successful in his Iberian adventure, but returns to Rome in time for the consular elections Following his election to high office, the means of which is highly amusing, he cannot sit still for long and soon leaves Crassus and Pompey in charge so that he can take his armies to Gaul to s [...]

    3. Steve on said:

      I didn t enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed the previous two in this series Why Good question For me, Caesar spends far too much of the books emphasis on his campaigns out of Rome Starting in Spain, then a really long time much of the book in Gaul, then his failures in Britain I love historical fiction, and facts, but there was no way of knowing all the conversations and details of what happened in his long campaign in Gaul That part dragged on too far for me, for too much of the book and kept [...]

    4. Ruth on said:

      1995 Conn Iggulden complimented another author by saying that Some authors are better historians than they are storytellers Anthony Riches is brilliant at both I think that this also describes Mr Iggulden s writing as well If I wanted an exact historical rendition of Julius Caesar, I would pick up a relevant historical tome But I happen to like my history told as a story with an explanation offered for some of the seemingly random choices made by people great and small Many of the reviews that I [...]

    5. J.S. Dunn on said:

      Sandals, sweat, and swords Should have known going into this how it would be, but hope springs infernal The frequent changes in narration and point of view, shifting from the military battles with Caesar back to Rome, proved to be the most disruptive Also disruptive were gratuitous sex scenes every X pages though those occur mostly in the first half of the book One cannot help but compare the depth and insight evident in McCullough s series on Rome, or the brilliance of Robert Harris trilogy of [...]

    6. Marcos on said:

      It s hard not to get hooked by Iggulden s storytelling, his style is concise and fast paced, very pleasant to read The story is captivating in itself and shifts from politics to bigger than life battles It s also interesting how Iggulden develops the friendship of Julius and Brutus, their loyalty and the tension slowly building

    7. Dvd (polemologico e pantoclastico) on said:

      E letteralmente un Harmony storico Profilo narrativo scarso profilo storico nullo.Si diceva dal punto di vista narrativo, siamo di fronte a un libro scritto in maniera banale, con personaggi o caricaturali al limite dell insulto o piatti come un tavolo, con una trama che riscrive in moltissimi aspetti la storia peggiorandola su tutti i fronti per la serie, historia magistra vitae in pi , imperdonabile, manca del tutto sia una ricostruzione credibile della vita, della societ e del modo di pensare [...]

      Taking up the story where the last one left off this is the third book in the four book Emperor series.We finally meet Mark Antony Caesar, Crassus and Pompey form their Triumvirate we lose some favourites fight battles and face duplicity than you d expect to find at a Two timers get together.Wonderful

    9. Ganesh Sree on said:

      Absolutely loved the detailing out of war, of which there are many The details of the Roman style of fighting has captured to perfection whilst the landscape for war moves across continents

    10. Julie on said:

      My book review for audiojukeboxToday is March 15th, or as most of us know, the Ides of March The three most common facts known about Julius Caesar is that he was one of the greatest rulers of the Roman Empire, he was assassinated on the Ides of March, and he created an amazing salad dressing that he named after himself Okay, so I made up that last bit about the salad dressing to see if anyone really reads these reviews But if you are at all curious and want to learn about the life of Caesar, or [...]

    11. Kara on said:

      Events move at a fast clip throughout the book The action never stops, which gives the reader a sense of the frenetic energy Julius Caesar feels inside him as he moves forward, not wanting to waste any time while trying to figure out his path The reader is taken on a tour of Europe as Caesar dashes from Spain to Italy to France to Germany to England, creating a new world in his wake because he does not want to leave anything at status quo I loved that these characters can t tell the future It fe [...]

    12. Arun Divakar on said:

      As the story opens, Julius Caesar is wrapping up his adventures in Spain With his ever ambitious and never silent mind driving him, he sets out to Rome What follows is the creation of the first triumvirate with Pompey, Crassus and Caesar after which he sets course for the conquest of Gaul and thereby carving a place for himself in history The curtains fall at the time when Caesar decides to lead his men across the Rubicon and back to Rome to challenge the might of Pompey.Romans as I understand w [...]

    13. David Campton on said:

      I ve consistently whined about the historical innacuracy in this series, but this one, apart from the core fiction that Caesar and Brutus shared much of their lives and careers together, sticks much closely to the facts of Caesar s rise to the Consulship and his subsequent Gallic wars Iggulden downplays some of the horrors of his subjugation of Gaul such as watching the women and children of Alesia starve to death between the twin walls but I suppose a lot of detail has to be sacrificed in what [...]

    14. Mark Harrison on said:

      Great third part in the history of Caesar Lots of political games in the first half and the battle heavy invasion of Gaul in the second Rattles along at great pace and really enjoyed the many fights Good stuff.

    15. Lori on said:

      Ah, Gaul And Gaul And Gaul.Field of Swords is a bit battle riffic for my preference The first half of the book, full of politics and intrigue, is much my style The endless sword and horse and spear scenes made my eyes roll back in my head Just for a minute, but over and over.I know, I know, it s a necessary part of Casear s history And it s not even that I minded him being away from Rome, because watching him purge his grief in Spain worked for me But there are only so many blood soaked vistas [...]

    16. Jamie on said:

      Having smashed up Spartacus at the end of the last book, The Field of Swords sees Caesar start off in Spain as Governor, before going on to pulling his mate s mum, illegally returning to home to Rome early to challenge for the role of Consul, setting up the First Triumvirate, smashing his way through Gaul and Britain, before deciding whether to return home once again by order of his only remaining military rival and previous ally or whether to start a massive civil war.Like with the last book, i [...]

    17. Hollis on said:

      With two novels behind him, Iggulden is definitely into his stride by now as he writes this It was just as action packed and entertaining, but the prose was much less blocky and the technical use of language much better I m glad that the violence was toned down as well I felt like the violence and brutality in the first two books was mindless at times and it often hampered my enjoyment.

    18. Fahed ( Fred ) on said:

      It s hard not to get hooked into reading these books by Conn Iggulden, beautifully written and a lot of facts and history in a way that s worth reading and paying attention to It was slow to start with but still worth all 5 stars.

    19. Wayne on said:

      I am really enjoying the Emperor series Well developed characters, great paced action and wonderfully written Just remember it is historical fiction, not historical fact.

    20. Ben on said:

      This series gets inside of you Well for me it does, it feels like you know all of the characters and as other Roman fiction authors, Conn has evoked a great sense of the times.

    21. Tasha on said:

      Another good round from Iggulden I generally enjoyed this one although at times I felt like it could be a 3.5 star read Overall though, a good read so will give another 4 stars.

    22. Phil Syphe on said:

      The Field of Swords did not appeal to me as much as the previous two books in the series.Good points This is a fast paced adventure yarn from the first century BC, starring Julius Caesar and Marcus Brutus.The battle scenes are vivid and believable.Despite the high number of characters, they are all well portrayed Bad points While some reviewers have criticised or condemned the author for his lack of historical accuracy, I can forgive this owing to him making it plain in an afterward that his err [...]

      In the third book of the Emperor series, The Field of Swords, Conn Iggulden continues the life of Julius Caesar Having proved his valor in the slaves revolt, the time has come for Caesar to enter the political battleground of Rome, supported by the love of Servilia and the sword of his loyal friend, Marcus Brutus, He the establishes his reputation, first in Spain, then to battle the armies of the wilderness of Gaul, and across the English Channel, and to the wilds of tribal Britaind forges his l [...]

    24. Annelies on said:

      Caesar is in dit derde deel machtiger dan ooit Hij wordt verkozen tot consul, sticht een triumviraat met Crassus en Pompeius en trekt richting Galli om het te veroveren.Dit derde deel speelt zich voornamelijk af in Galli en de verschillende veldslagen komen uitvoerig aan bod Interessant maar na een tijdje had ik het er ook wel mee gehad Ik keek uit naar de hoofdstukken die zich in Rome afspeelden Het conflict tussen Clodius en Milo, dat ervoor zorgde dat Pompeius het dictatorschap claimde wordt [...]

    25. Kris Van Laer on said:

      story gets better and better third part takes us to the consulship of Pompey and Crassus, followed up by Caesar who after that goes on a quest to conquer Gaul leading to a finale at the Rubicon, waiting to cross the river for an attack on the city at dictator Pompeywe all know the stories but this book is written fast paced, leaving out some details but that makes it a great and easy read for a very complex part in history

    26. Jasmina on said:

      Even though, with 47 chapters, it was a bit tiresome to read, I still liked this book view spoiler I expected the death of Cabera in this book, with him suffering a stroke from healing Domiticus, but Renius s death came as an unexpected blow to me hide spoiler Now we come to the part of Caesar s life which is I believe known to most his crossing of the Rubicon and fight for power over Rome The next book has only 35 chapters, and I expect to finish it sooner than this one.

    27. Robert Hepple on said:

      The Field of Swords is the 3rd instalment in the Conqueror series and was first published in 2005 It is set mainly in Gaul, where Caesar spends some years pacifying the region, and generally running up a huge body count Iggulden knows how to tell a great tale, and also knows when to add traditional ingredients to the story Great fun.

    28. Louis on said:

      Tracking Caesa s time in Spain and Gaul, as well as the period when Pompeii had control of Rome, this was an interesting, edge of your seat which ends on a massive cliff hanger I can t wait to read the next one

    29. col on said:

      I am very disappointed with this series of books.i have loved both the conqueror series and the wars of the roses and was really excited to read this series but I have tried to persevere with this and failedad 300 pages and decided to call it a day.

    30. Brenda Laraine on said:

      Early beginning of interaction between Brutus and Caesar, you can see the start of the rumblings to come The young, hungry, warrior Caesar with the ability to lead his loyal legionaries wherever there is a new land to conquer in the name of Rome Not too bad but a little tedious at times.
