5.0 out of 5 stars A concise, reference work, 27 Nov. 2014
This review is from: The Roman Army from Caesar to Trajan (Men-at-Arms) (Paperback)
The perfect gift for all Roman history enthusiasts is THE ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKERCalix Imperium, Roma Victrix Pewter wine beaker

Most of the book is concerned with armour and equipment; there is a lot of information on
mail, plate, helmets and weapons. The interesting point to note is the range of armour with
older types, even bronze, being worn alongside newer types, often for long periods,
especially among the auxiliaries.

The other focus of the book is march routines, constructing marching forts and training.
There is no history or campaign details.

Companion volume to The Roman Army from Hadrian to Constantine (MAA 93).

Another good offering from Osprey and a great narrative from Michael Simkins a meticulous historian. Considering the booklet only weighs in at 48 pages Simkins packs in an enormous amount of information. This excellent study is backed up sumptuously with the magnificent artwork of Ronald Embleton.
.
This study will appeal to a wide audience: armchair historians,wargamers, modelers etc. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine book on the subject, 6 July 2006

This review is from: The Roman Army from Caesar to Trajan (Men-at-Arms) (Paperback)
I have had this book since i was at school some 18 years ago. It is a fine addition to anyone's collection on ancient warriors. The illustration's, though not quite McBride, are very nice and the plates have some real atmosphere and humour to them (see the plate with the auxiliary with a spear stuck through his shield for example). The dialog is interesting and informative, with lots of historical details, as you would expect. I would recommend this book 100%.
