Product Description


Professor Le Bohec has assembled an all–star cast of scholars to produce an essential reference tool for any aspect of the Roman army from its origins to its final days.  A tour de force! Nathan Rosenstein, The Ohio State University

No other encyclopedia exists on the Roman army. This is an invaluable scholarly resource, which also appeals to a wide audience. Librarians take note! Beau David Case, University of Michigan

From the Back Cover

It should come as no surprise that the history of the great Roman Empire was inextricably linked to the successes of its army. The Encyclopedia of the Roman Army is a comprehensive three–volume reference to the armed forces deployed by ancient Rome, from its origins in the early Republic to the waning days of empire. While sectional listings are considered chronologically in the Republic, Principate, and Late Antique periods, special emphasis is devoted to the Imperial era a period for which textual and archaeological evidence abounds, and a time during which the Roman army was at its peak Entries cover a range of topics from military training, weapons, tactics, and strategy to individual battles, legions, commanders, army life, veterans, and much more. Larger themes relating to the military and Rome′s economy, politics, and religion are also explored. With individual listings contributed from some of the world′s most prestigious scholars and military historians, The Encyclopedia of the Roman Army is the definitive resource for one of the greatest military institutions in world history. The Encyclopedia of the Roman Army is available in three print volumes, or in an electronic edition on Wiley Online Library: www.wileyonlinelibrary.com/ref/romanarmy .

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
We waited a long time but it was worth it. Complete, authoritive and brimming with information. The list of contributors is a Who's who of experts on the Roman army, republican, principate and late. Two issues, the first is that it is extremely expensive ( though worth every penny in my opinion), the second is that Amazon UK sent me twice only the third volume so I had to send them back, obtain a refund and buy direct from publisher so might want to check if Amazon have sorted this issue before buying. Other than these two points if you are interested in the subject and have some money to spare,absolutely buy it!
