Useful little booklet on legionary life,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Roman Legionary, AD 69-161 (Warrior) (Paperback)
As usual a good small booklet which presents the main themes of the life of a legionary in the time of the Empire AD 69-161. This was a time when much of the Empire was at peace and when Roman tourism first sprang forth. The book however emphasises the life of a legionary such as his tasks, his uniform, armour, weapons etc as well as training. The artwork is quite good but does not compare to the superb work of Angus McBride much used in previous Osprey books, e.g. Roman Legionary 58 BC - AD 69. This book also changes the usual format where the artwork is presented in a central section to now being spread throughout the book. Personally I prefer the central section approach.
