Having got possession of the hostages whom Caesar had deposited with them, they terrify the hesitating by putting them to death. [4] The 2005 television series Rome gives a fictionalized account of Caesar's rise and fall, featuring Kevin McKidd as the character of Lucius Vorenus and Ray Stevenson as the character of Titus Pullo of 13th Legion . They concoct a plan to burn their homes and then make a mass exodus out of their homeland. Caesar enlists a large number of new troops to replace the ones lost the previous year when the forces of Q. Titurius Sabinus and L. Aurunculeius Cotta were slain by the forces of Ambiorix. A great slaughter ensues; some leave their horses, and endeavor to cross the ditch and climb the wall. Vercingetorix surrenders to Caesar after the battle of Alesia. When noon now seemed to draw nigh, he marched hastily against that camp which we have mentioned before; and, at the same time, the cavalry began to approach the fortifications in the plain, and the rest of the forces to make a demonstration in front of the camp. From these tribes Caesar learns the location of Cassivellaunus and successfully attacks him there. Instead, he turns his attention to the Treveri and Ambiorix. After much discussion and disagreement, the Romans decide to trust Ambiorix and leave the next morning. If the infantry should [be obliged to] relieve their cavalry, and be retarded by doing so, the march could not be accomplished: if, abandoning their baggage they should provide for their safety (a result which, he trusted, was more like to ensue), they would lose both property and character. To them are assigned men selected from each state, by whose advice the war should be conducted. A slaughter ensues in every direction, and three of the noblest of the Aedui are taken and brought to Caesar: Cotus, the commander of the cavalry, who had been engaged in the contest with Convictolitanis the last election, Cavarillus, who had held the command of the infantry after the revolt of Litavicus, and Eporedirix, under whose command the Aedui had engaged in war against the Sequani, before the arrival of Caesar. The idea uppermost in the minds of both parties is, that the present is the time in which they would have the fairest opportunity of making a struggle; the Gauls despairing of all safety, unless they should succeed in forcing the lines: the Romans expecting an end to all their labors if they should gain the day. Caesar puts his legions in winter quarters among various tribes of Gaul. The besieged run together when these auxiliaries were seen; mutual congratulations ensue, and the minds of all are elated with joy. The cavalry is suddenly seen in the rear of the Gauls; the other cohorts advance rapidly; the enemy turn their backs; the cavalry intercept them in their flight, and a great slaughter ensues. When noon now seemed to draw nigh, he marched hastily against that camp which we have mentioned before; and, at the same time, the cavalry began to approach the fortifications in the plain, and the rest of the forces to make a demonstration in front of the camp. Book 8 was written by Aulus Hirtius, after Caesar's death. The Aedui request Vercingetorix to come to them and communicate his plans of conducting the war. On this circumstance being announced, Caesar orders his cavalry also to form three divisions and charge the enemy. Several of our soldiers were unexpectedly wounded by these, and left the battle. Therefore he tries to ensure peace by treating all the Gauls respectfully and giving gifts to the leading men of Gaul. Cesare - De Bello Gallico Libro VII I - L'assemblea dei capi Quieta Gallia Caesar, ut constituerat, in Italiam ad conventus agendos proficiscitur. The Arverni and Sequani decide to get help in their struggle from Germanic mercenaries from across the Rhine, led by a king named Ariovistus. The Gauls, who were within the fortifications, were no less panic-stricken, thinking that the enemy were coming that moment against them, and unanimously shout "to arms;" some in their alarm rush into the town; Vercingetorix orders the gates to be shut, lest the camp should be left undefended. The Helvii, voluntarily engaging in battle with their neighbors, are defeated, and Caius Valerius Donotaurus, the son of Caburus, the principal man of the state, and several others, being slain, they are forced to retire within their towns and fortifications. To be unable to bear privation for a short time is disgraceful cowardice, not true valor. Caesar's troops counterattack and put the Belgae to flight. Commentarii de Bello Gallico Aedui Druid Battle of Magetobriga Ariovistus. Our troops, as each man's post had been assigned him some days before, man the fortifications; they intimidate the Gauls by slings, large stones, stakes which they had placed along the works, and bullets. Traduzione di Paragrafo 28, Libro 1 di Cesare. 7.69 The town itself was situated on the top of a hill, in a very lofty position, so that it did not appear likely to be taken, except by a regular siege. 7.69 The town itself was situated on the top of a hill, in a very lofty position, so that it did not appear likely to be taken, except by a regular siege. When these came to the Roman fortifications, weeping, they begged of the soldiers by every entreaty to receive them as slaves and relieve them with food. , English translation by W. A. MACDEVITT, introduction by THOMAS DE QUINCEY (1915) (incomplete). 7.79 In the mean time, Commius and the rest of the leaders, to whom the supreme command had been intrusted, came with all their forces to Alesia, and having occupied the entire hill, encamped not more than a mile from our fortifications. 7.68 All his cavalry being routed, Vercingetorix led back his troops in the same order as he had arranged them before the camp, and immediately began to march to Alesia, which is a town of the Mandubii, and ordered the baggage to be speedily brought forth from the camp, and follow him closely. Suddenly, the occupied tribes strike at the vulnerable Romans, posing a grave threat. Commentarii de bello Gallico. Caesar, vastly outnumbered, creates a ruse, ordering his troops to appear confused and frightened. So the levy of troops in reality took away two legions from Caesar. The style is simple and elegant, essential and not rhetorical. For as to the enemy's horse, they ought not to entertain a doubt that none of them would dare to advance beyond the main body. After bloody fighting, the Romans are victorious. The Helvetii are defeated by the Romans, and return to Helvetia, their numbers greatly reduced. They appoint over their forces Vergasillaunus, the Arvernian, one of the four generals, and a near relative of Vercingetorix. The camp was pitched in a strong position, and twenty-three redoubts were raised in it, in which sentinels were placed by day, lest any sally should be made suddenly; and by night the same were occupied by watches and strong guards. In de Commentarii de Bello Gallico, Caesar melding van verscheidene leiders van de Gallische stammen. These stakes being sunk into this trench, and fastened firmly at the bottom, to prevent the possibility of their being torn up, had their branches only projecting from the ground. They demand thirty-five thousand men from the Aedui and their dependents, the Segusiani, Ambivareti, and Aulerci Brannovices; an equal number from the Arverni in conjunction with the Eleuteti Cadurci, Gabali, and Velauni, who were accustomed to be under the command of the Arverni; twelve thousand each from the Senones, Sequani, Bituriges, Sentones, Ruteni, and Carnutes; ten thousand from the Bellovaci; the same number from the Lemovici; eight thousand each from the Pictones, and Turoni, and Parisii, and Helvii; five thousand each from the Suessiones, Ambiani, Mediomatrici, Petrocorii, Nervii, Morini, and Nitiobriges; the same number from the Aulerci Cenomani; four thousand from the Atrebates; three thousand each from the Bellocassi, Lexovii, and Aulerci Eburovices; thirty thousand from the Rauraci, and Boii; six thousand from all the states together, which border on the Atlantic, and which in their dialect are called Armoricae (in which number are comprehended the Curisolites, Rhedones, Ambibari, Caltes, Osismii, Lemovices, Veneti, and Unelli). After receiving many wounds on all sides, and having forced no part of the works, when day drew nigh, fearing lest they should be surrounded by a sally made from the higher camp on the exposed flank, they retreated to their countrymen. The Gauls within, despairing of forcing the fortifications in the plains on account of the greatness of the works, attempt the places precipitous in ascent: hither they bring the engines which they had prepared; by the immense number of their missiles they dislodge the defenders from the turrets: they fill the ditches with clay and hurdles, then clear the way; they tear down the rampart and breast-work with hooks. The circuit of that fortification, which was commenced by the Romans, comprised eleven miles. A flight of the Gauls from their camp immediately ensues on hearing of this disaster, and had not the soldiers been wearied by sending frequent reinforcements, and the labor of the entire day, all the enemy's forces could have been destroyed. Drapes and Luterius stop at a town called Uxellodunum which is strongly fortified by its geography. 7.65 The only guards provided against all these contingencies were twenty-two cohorts, which were collected from the entire province by Lucius Caesar, the lieutenant, and opposed to the enemy in every quarter.

Ambiorix convinces the other Belgic tribes to immediately attack Cicero's camp. Therefore they should attack them on their march, when encumbered. Caesar summons the other Roman legions and rushes to Cicero's aid. The Aedui, Haedui, or Hedui (Gaulish: "the ardent ones"; Ancient Greek: Αἰδούοι) were a Gallic tribe, dwelling in the modern Burgundy region during the La Tène and Roman periods. 7.78 When different opinions were expressed, they determined that those who, owing to age or ill health, were unserviceable for war, should depart from the town, and that themselves should try every expedient before they had recourse to the advice of Critognatus: however, that they would rather adopt that design, if circumstances should compel them and their allies should delay, than accept any terms of a surrender or peace. Back at Port Itius, Caesar prepares to take many Gallic hostages with him to his British campaign so as to prevent revolts while he is gone. He charges them when departing "that each of them should go to his respective state, and press for the war all who were old enough to bear arms; he states his own merits, and conjures them to consider his safety, and not surrender him who had deserved so well of the general freedom, to the enemy for torture; he points out to them that, if they should be remiss, eighty thousand chosen men would perish with him; that upon making a calculation, he had barely corn for thirty days, but could hold out a little longer by economy." 7.71 Vercingetorix adopts the design of sending away all his cavalry by night, before the fortifications should be completed by the Romans. He orders their arms to be surrendered, and their chieftains delivered up. Cassivellaunus orders the tribes in Kent to attack the British ships, but they are defeated. 7.67 This proposal receiving general approbation, and all being forced to take the oath, on the next day the cavalry were divided into three parts, and two of these divisions made a demonstration on our two flanks; while one in front began to obstruct our march. Yet such was the unanimity of the Gauls in asserting their freedom, and recovering their ancient renown in war, that they were influenced neither by favors, nor by the recollection of private friendship; and all earnestly directed their energies and resources to that war, and collected eight thousand cavalry, and about two hundred and forty thousand infantry. The contest is maintained on both sides with the utmost vigor; Caesar sends the Germans to aid our troops when distressed, and draws up the legions in front of the camp, lest any sally should be suddenly made by the enemy's infantry. Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools. The Senate passes a decree that Pompey and Caesar should each contribute one legion to the Parthian war in the East. He orders all boats to assemble at Portus Itius (near modern day Boulogne-sur-Mer).          Political / Social. The principal struggle is at the upper lines, to which as we have said Vergasillaunus was sent. 7.85 Caesar, having selected a commanding situation, sees distinctly whatever is going on in every quarter, and sends assistance to his troops when hard pressed. The cavalry unanimously shout out, "That they ought to bind themselves by a most sacred oath, that he should not be received under a roof, nor have access to his children, parents, or wife, who shall not twice have ridden through the enemy's army.". The military conflict that follows culminates in a huge battle with the toughest of all the Belgae, the Nervii. Stakes a foot long, with iron hooks attached to them, were entirely sunk in the ground before these, and were planted in every place at small intervals; these they called spurs. Consulta qui la traduzione all'italiano di Paragrafo 12 - Situazione politica, Libro 6 dell'opera latina De Bello Gallico, di Cesare A shout being raised by both sides, it was succeeded by a general shout along the ramparts and whole line of fortifications. Caesar invites neighboring tribes to pillage and plunder the Eburones. Acco, the leader of the rebellion, is found guilty and put to death by Caesar. Only when Caesar personally led the last reserves into battle did he finally manage to prevail, leading to the surrender of Vercingetorix. That same day Caesar’s troops reach Cicero's camp finding most of the men wounded. The Gauls within, despairing of forcing the fortifications in the plains on account of the greatness of the works, attempt the places precipitous in ascent: hither they bring the engines which they had prepared; by the immense number of their missiles they dislodge the defenders from the turrets: they fill the ditches with clay and hurdles, then clear the way; they tear down the rampart and breast-work with hooks. What courage do you think would our relatives and friends have, if eighty thousand men were butchered in one spot, supposing that they should be forced to come to an action almost over our corpses? They came together in great numbers and from every quarter to the same place. As more and more Gallic tribes join the rebellion, Caesar reaches his armies in Narbo and begins to move them toward the territory of the Arverni. When many were evidently taking the side of the Gauls and Germanics, the time had come for him to act on public opinion. For as to the enemy's horse, they ought not to entertain a doubt that none of them would dare to advance beyond the main body. Caesar goes to Aquitania to assure the loyalty of the tribes there. When these two legions were delivered to Italy, instead of being sent to fight against the Parthians, they remained in Italy and were handed over to Pompey. De Bello Gallico consists of eight books: seven written by Caesar himself, and the eighth book added later by Aulus Hirtius, one of Caesar's generals. C. IVLI CAESARIS COMMENTARII DE BELLO GALLICO LIBER SEXTVS - Caesar's Commentaries On The Gallic War Book VI CATO THE ELDER - M. Porcius Cato Censor - 234 - 149 BC M. PORCI CATONIS CENSORIS DE AGRI CVLTVRA 7.70 The work having been begun, a cavalry action ensues in that plain, which we have already described as broken by hills, and extending three miles in length. Cicero, in charge of Atuatuca, is not supposed to let anybody out of the camp for the sake of security. To do as our ancestors did in the war against the Cimbri and Teutones, which was by no means equally momentous who, when driven into their towns, and oppressed by similar privations, supported life by the corpses of those who appeared useless for war on account of their age, and did not surrender to the enemy: and even if we had not a precedent for such cruel conduct, still I should consider it most glorious that one should be established, and delivered to posterity. 7.84 Vercingetorix, having beheld his countrymen from the citadel of Alesia, issues forth from the town; he brings forth from the camp long hooks, movable pent-houses, mural hooks, and other things, which he had prepared for the purpose of making a sally. All march to Alesia, sanguine and full of confidence: nor was there a single individual who imagined that the Romans could withstand the sight of such an immense host: especially in an action carried on both in front and rear, when [on the inside] the besieged would sally from the town and attack the enemy, and on the outside so great forces of cavalry and infantry would be seen. The Britons initially catch the Romans off guard, but the Romans regroup and rout the Britons. Our men have no longer arms or strength. In response to this, Caesar lays waste to the territory of the Nervii, neighbors of the Treveri. The soldiers called these "cippi." He demands a great number of hostages. 7.75 While those things are carried on at Alesia, the Gauls, having convened a council of their chief nobility, determine that all who could bear arms should not be called out, which was the opinion of Vercingetorix, but that a fixed number should be levied from each state; lest, when so great a multitude assembled together, they could neither govern nor distinguish their men, nor have the means of supplying them with corn. Behind these he raised a rampart and wall twelve feet high; to this he added a parapet and battlements, with large stakes cut like stags' horns, projecting from the junction of the parapet and battlements, to prevent the enemy from scaling it, and surrounded the entire work with turrets, which were eighty feet distant from one another. To this place embassadors are sent by the Arveni, who promise that they will execute his commands.

Caesar thought that further additions should be made to these works, in order that the fortifications might be defensible by a small number of soldiers. The Romans slaughter almost all of the Gauls within the town, causing a huge loss for the Gauls. The Gauls had scattered archers and light-armed infantry here and there, among their cavalry, to give relief to their retreating troops, and sustain the impetuosity of our cavalry. But Caesar, placing guards on the rampart, forbade them to be admitted. He sends Caius Antistius Reginus into the [country of the] Ambivareti, Titus Sextius into the territories of the Bituriges, and Caius Caninius Rebilus into those of the Ruteni, with one legion each. When these came to the Roman fortifications, weeping, they begged of the soldiers by every entreaty to receive them as slaves and relieve them with food. Caesar quickly arrives with Roman troops. Raising a shout suddenly, that by this intimation those who were besieged in the town might learn their arrival, they began to cast down hurdles and dislodge our men from the rampart by slings, arrows, and stones, and executed the other movements which are requisite in storming. After fighting from noon almost to sunset, without victory inclining in favor of either, the Germans, on one side, made a charge against the enemy in a compact body, and drove them back; and, when they were put to flight, the archers were surrounded and cut to pieces. He demands a great number of hostages. Stakes a foot long, with iron hooks attached to them, were entirely sunk in the ground before these, and were planted in every place at small intervals; these they called spurs. In this manner he prepares to await the succors from Gaul, and carry on the war. Caesar De Bello Gallico 1 23 Hi there. To do as our ancestors did in the war against the Cimbri and Teutones, which was by no means equally momentous who, when driven into their towns, and oppressed by similar privations, supported life by the corpses of those who appeared useless for war on account of their age, and did not surrender to the enemy: and even if we had not a precedent for such cruel conduct, still I should consider it most glorious that one should be established, and delivered to posterity. A supplication of twenty-days is decreed by the senate at Rome, on learning these successes from Caesar's dispatches. And I would approve of this opinion (for honor is a powerful motive with me), could I foresee no other loss, save that of life; but let us, in adopting our design, look back on all Gaul, which we have stirred up to our aid. At , English translation by W. A. McDevitte and W. S. Bohn (1869); Latin text edition. Several of our soldiers were unexpectedly wounded by these, and left the battle. Labienus defeats the Treveri and captures their leaders. My business is with those who approve of a sally: in whose advice the memory of our ancient prowess seems to dwell in the opinion of you all. A shout being raised by both sides, it was succeeded by a general shout along the ramparts and whole line of fortifications. The besieged, beholding from the town the slaughter and flight of their countrymen, despairing of safety, lead back their troops from the fortifications. DE BELLO GALLICO LIBRO 1 - GALLIC WAR I Caesar English translation. But what other motive or wish have the Romans, than, induced by envy, to settle in the lands and states of those whom they have learned by fame to be noble and powerful in war, and impose on them perpetual slavery? Onder hen zijn Diviciacus en Vercingetorix opmerkelijk vanwege hun bijdragen aan de Galliërs tijdens de oorlog. Vercingetorix, having convened a council the following day, declares, "That he had undertaken that war, not on account of his own exigences, but on account of the general freedom; and since he must yield to fortune, he offered himself to them for either purpose, whether they should wish to atone to the Romans by his death, or surrender him alive.
