How Julius Caesar made himself a Hero

This is the man. The real deal. The big kahuna. The one guy who everyone thinks of as soon as you say hero, leader, warrior. How did he get that way? On purpose is how. He intended to become a hero, worked hard it it, and did. Went to the Alps, France, Germany, England -- kicked barbarian butt everywhere he went. Then wrote down all his exploits, so that everyone would know what he had done. And he wrote just as skillfully as he fought.

War in Gaul by Julius Caesar is not just a classic. It is one heck of a thrilling story.
