A Book to Read and Love: Lives of the Great Commanders - Cornelius Nepo (Quintus Curtius)

 


A short summary of Lives of the Great Commanders:

Biographical sketches of the ancient generals.

My favorite quote from the book:

"Each man's personal habits shape his own fortune."


Questions to ponder while reading Lives of the Great Commanders:

Do the rules of war apply to everyday situations?

Do you enjoy games of strategy?

My thoughts about the book:

A new translation of an ancient work.

In-depth information about the old generals.

Historically valuable but a teensy bit dry.
