From School Library Journal:

YA-A fascinating and enlightening piece of historical fiction that centers around Julius Caesar's rise to power. Through the voice of Marcus Caelius Rufus, a Roman commander during the civil war between Pompey and Caesar, Jaro fuses many elements of the times into a coherent account. Caelius attempts to sort out his allegiances through writing in a journal as he awaits an inevitable attack. Through flashbacks, readers see him coming of age, rising to a position of respect, commanding an army, and ultimately wavering on which side to support. The oratorical powers of Cicero, the military triumphs of Pompey the Great, and the ambitions of Caesar are all conveyed. The decadence that led to the fall of Rome comes through, as does the spirit of the times. YAs are sure to appreciate this look at the human side of this period in history.-Diane Goheen, Topeka West High School, KS

From Library Journal:

Today Zeller is a sculptor and writer; 50 years ago, just before the outbreak of World War II, he was an 11-year-old Berliner, eager for life. When he saw how determined the Nazis were to make life difficult for the Jews, and then even began to round them up for purposes he could not know, he and two cousins smuggled themselves into Holland. Because Zeller liked to write and draw, he kept a diary of his escape and escapades which now form the basis for this book. The book is very well written and recounts those cruel years as a backdrop to the story of boyhood. The book ends all too soon with Zeller's departure to a British children's camp, but there is promise of a sequel, the English years in the 1940s. Watch for it.
