    With Caesar’s conquest of Gaul complete, focus now turns to his much anticipated return to Rome. Caesar envisions the triumphant return of a conquering hero. The Optimates envision a criminal being dragged before a court controlled and guarded by the armed soldiers of Pompey.

Brilliant

I’m only on episode 45, but I can’t give Trevor enough praise. The content is awesome and the style which he presents the history is top notch. I wish I would’ve listened in the beginning because I would’ve left a review earlier. I’m having a blast and hope Trevor keeps going, and we get to live Caesar’s entire life through The March of History.

Hail Caesar

This podcast is an interesting in-depth look at the life of Julius Caesar. It is comical in its absurdity. I enjoy the host’s storytelling style.

Great deepdive from a gifted storyteller

I think I'm pretty knowledgable when it comes to history but I really learned a lot from this series. Really enjoyable no matter what your knowledge of ancient Roman history is!
