There have been lots of great military commanders over the centuries, but one of the best ever and definitely the best in European history is Julius Caesar. The greatest military commander must have smart strategies and use their power to grow and conquer. On July 12 or 13, 100 B.C., in Rome, Italy, Caesar was born (Nice). Being a descendant of the Trojan Prince, Aeneas, he grew up to be full of himself (Nice). Though Caesar was egotistical, he was the greatest military commander in European history because his military IQ was astounding, he cared for and fought beside his men, and he also expanded the Roman Empire to its greatest lengths.

Alexander was born in Macedonia, son of Philip II, king of Macedonia.

Instead of marching troops to the front line in months, generals could quickly deploy troops within days or weeks.
But not all in Rome loved Caesar. Some loved him, some hated him, but such is the life of a prominent leader.

This can be felt by the many instances in the story, "A blow landed hard against the nape of my neck", "Blows landed below the belt and in the kidney", and many more.

With the lack of personal hygiene, unsavory and repugnant food, and the shortage of clothing made living, a very difficult thing to do.
