Excerpt from The Gallic War: Books I VII The campaign-maps are on the same scale as the general map of Gaul, being, in fact, portions of the latter, with necessary additions. All modern names have been rigorously excluded from maps and battle plans, in the belief that they' tend only to confuse the young student. To compensate for this omission, a modern map has been added. This does not profess to be a complete map of the territory included in it, but is practically a copy of the ancient map, showing modern instead.of ancient names, and generally only names mentioned in the introduction, notes, and vocabulary. It is hoped that it will enable the student to orient him. Self as he reads, and gain an appreciation of the fact that Gaul was the country which is now France.
