Product description

From the Inside Flap

No book on Roman history has attempted to do what Stephen Dando-Collins does in Legions of Rome: to provide a complete history of every Imperial Roman legion and what it achieved as a fighting force. The author has spent the last thirty years collecting every scrap of available evidence from all the literary and archaeological sources - stone and bronze inscriptions, coins, papyrus and narrative accounts - in a remarkable feat of historical detective work.
The book is divided into three parts: Part One provides a detailed account of what the legionaries wore and ate, what camp life was like, what they were paid and how they were motivated and punished. This section also contains numerous personal histories of individual soldiers. Part Two offers unit histories of all the legions that served Rome for 300 years from 30 BC. Part Three is a sweeping chronological survey of the campaigns in which the armies were involved, told from the point of view of the legions.
Featuring over 150 maps, photographs, diagrams and battle plans, Legions of Rome is a landmark publication in every sense. Both unique and definitive, it is an essential purchase for ancient history enthusiasts, military history experts and general readers alike.

About the Author

Stephen Dando-Collins is a novelist and historian. He is the author of several highly acclaimed works on ancient history including Cleopatra's Kidnappers, Nero's Killing Machine, Mark Antony's Heroes, Caesar's Legion and, most recently, Blood of the Caesars. He lives in Australia.
