As any good Roman politician, both former partners were ostensibly experts on realpolitik; in all likelihood they would have never allowed any level of friendship stand in the way of their respective ambitions.

Yep, I agree. This was demonstrated quite keenly.

Im interested to hear your opinion on Dyracchium, considering Pompey' long absence from the fontlines.

Anyway , I think Caesar had many lucky . He hadn't to face with powerful army of Crassius and talented general Sulla . You can remember Sulla is very intellegent . Caesar is very excellent but i don't think his is the best of ROman . Some emperor is successful like him in millitary range .
