An excellent introduction to the Roman Army for the neophyte and a useful broad summary for the enthusiast. All in all an accurate, well-written book, and a pleasure to read. Recommended.

really cleared up a lot of mistaken ideas I had. Especially about the makeup of the soldiers, the size of the units, etc. Plenty on tactics, camps, weapons, armor and that sort of thing.

This book is a mix of various Roman army related Osprey titles and is a very good book providing most of the information in those books at less price than buying each individual Osprey book.
