Caesar’s Civil War

In the January of 49BC, Caesar initiated the opening of a Roman Civil War by famously crossing the Rubicon River. The resulting schism in the Roman Triumvirate set Pompey and Caesar against each other in open warfare for five years, eventually resulting in Caesar’s victory and his declaration as Dictator in Perpetuity. With the fate of Western civilisation hanging in the balance, and open rebellion in the provinces of Hispania, Macedonia, and Italia, how will the Republic fare as we relive this ancient conflict? Will sheer military might win the day, or can a savvy politician find a more sophisticated path to victory?
