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 .
