A most excellent find! THE TWELVE CAESERs by Suetonius! This classic of Ancient Rome is on the required reading list of all professional soldiers and philosophers. This is a modern translation in English, of course, and now, thanks to the wonderful technology of the Internet, we can challenge ourselves with French or Italian translations, or brush up on the old high school Latin with the original text!
Like Mrs. Mussolini used to say: "Study hard, there will be a test!"
