Caligula an unexpected general offers a new appraisal of caligula as a surprisingly competent military strategist arguing that his achievements helped to secure roman military power in europe for a generation. Monster or military genius gaius caligula reigned for four short years from 37 to 41 ce before his infamous tenure came to a violent end while much has been written about caligulas notorious excesses and court life relatively little is known of his military and foreign policy.
