    He then asked the Aedui to send him all their cavalry plus 10, infantry. Dio also gives a description of a Roman attack on a refugee camp during an armistice that makes more sense than Caesar's own description of his fight against the Usipetes and Tencteri. Next day he keeps two legions hidden and has the rest of his men march out, spacing the intervals so they will appear to the enemy to be the same number of troops as the day before. One of the few to escape, unfortunately, is Ariovistus, a principal German leader.

    The army lay down its arms Caesars Gallic War book submitted themselves. But he is faced with a dilemma: if he sends for his legions, they might be attacked without their general and, if he goes to them, he might be betrayed by the tribes to whom he entrusts his personal safety. The ancients believed that if you left the Mediterranean and moved inland, you would reach increasingly barbarous people, until, when you reached the Ocean at the edge of the world, where ebb and flood occur, the land was inhabited by absolute savages. Thus neither husbandry, nor the art and practice of war are neglected. Vercingetorix marched his troops there in order to defend his people. There, like sheep herded into a fold, the enemy is trapped.

    He finds the German horses, unfortunately, not good enough for his purposes, so takes Caesars Gallic War book horses away from the Romans and gives them to the German horsemen. The Helveti also give Caesar hostages to ensure that the Helveti keep their promises 1. In addition, the stones protect it from fire. He then moves to aid Labienus, who has pulled back four cohorts and sent the horsemen around the wall to attack the rear of the enemy units who harass the hill side of the Roman entrenchment. Caesar split his army and gave Labienus 4 legions to lead north, towards the Senones and Parisii while he led 6 legions into Arverni country towards Gergovia, which was on the banks of the Allier. Two examples of this is when Caesar demands the children of chieftains 2.

The sixth book offers descriptions of some hard fighting in the valley of the Meuse and a second invasion of Germany. The troops see the two men and realize that Litaviccus has lied. The Ocean shores are often mentioned, even when there is no need to.

To defend himself against these threats, Caesar knew he needed the support of the plebeiansparticularly the Tribunes of the Plebs, on whom he chiefly relied for help in carrying out his agenda. Vercingetorix suggested a scorched-earth policy.

Caesar then subdues the Morini and the Menapii tribes. All the Gallic leaders then convene at Bibracte to discuss the dispute and the body votes that Vercingetorix continue as leader. Caesar's defense is immediate. In the dispute over the magistracy they were on opposing sides.
