The latest logo was developed in 2018. The theme has remained the same since June 2, 2015.

Theme change is underway for Universal Digest. Since its inception in June of 2015, the creators have striven to bring the viewing audience the finest of materials to view in a wide range of theme formats.

The parent theme has been updated; however, many of its components are no longer supported from the originators. Therefore, all new theme choices will be with WordPress.

The drop-down menu options remain the same. The format is the same overall. But, some of the bells and whistles are no longer supported. Simple is good.

We value the audience opinions and welcome any insights to improve the new theme. If you wish, please click the “Contact Us” text and tell us what you think could be added to enrich the viewer experience.

As always, web development is a constant “work in progress” and improvements will occur as time marches onward.

In this installment of REDMOND'S REVIEW, Darren delivers his synopsis of 'The Gallic War', Julius Caesar.

Julius Caesar and ‘The Gallic War’ is discussed in this week’s installment of REDMOND’S REVIEW. Darren Redmond gives the audience his synopsis of this classic book. It is available to read free in the public domain.

REDMOND’S REVIEW covers commentaries on: The Gallic War, Julius Caesar.


Ever wonder what it was like to actually hear or in this case read, firsthand assessments from some of the legendary figures we learned about in school? Conveniently found free in the public record, written in the third person, Julius Caesar’s notes, which when put together, became the book titled, ‘Commentaries on the Gallic War’. It offers us such a rare experience.

This book I found as interesting to read as the autobiography of Ben Franklin which also is free in the public record. In it, we learn about his strategies of war, we learn a lot about the Germanic and Gaelic people and some of the thriving communities back then that simply do not exist anymore.

We learned about Druids and about how, even way before World War 2, crossing the Rhine was considered a huge advancement.


og: Julius
This is the book mural of Commentaries On: The Gallic War, Julius Caesar.

We learn about how the use of hostages as a negotiating tool for peace was standard practice back then. Also, we learn that as a strategic military move after burning a village, it included burning all the crops, too. Julius Caesar would advocate, in some circumstances, the replanting of those crops and the rebuilding of those villages. This was not so much to show mercy on the people, but rather so that they would have allegiance to Rome. It would dissuade another party coming in trying to convince the people of why they should align themselves with their realm.

If you are a student of history and are looking forward something to read or listen to while sheltered in place, I highly endorse this book.
