Product description


...usually checked out for a school project, but students report reading the entire book for pleasure after the fact.

A very useful introduction to military practice in the late First Century.

Highly informative and readable volume lays out in detail the high honor and great risk of defending Rome as a foot soldier.... The author knows his subject thoroughly and presents it with flare, a touch of humor, and authority. The many illustrations, including 16 color plates, add measurably to the enjoyment of the book.... Will more than satisfy.
