More research needed by the author,
This review is from: Legions of Rome: The definitive history of every Roman legion (Hardcover)
I have to echo some of the reviewers below. This book has some shocking omissions, elements of it are based on opinion more than factual information - which is fine, but the author needs to differentiate between the two clearly.
There is also some basic errors, such as dates and actual legions that have not been confirmed as actually ever existing.
I've shown this to several PhD colleagues and other professors of note, who agree this is riddled with inaccurate information that it is almost laughable.
Personally I would suggest researching from known scholars such as Adrian Goldsworthy for one.
