Product Description


'The full story of Vegetius in the medieval era has not been told. Christopher Allmand … has perhaps capped his career with what is likely to be the definitive study of Vegetius in the Middle Ages for the foreseeable future.' Everett L. Wheeler, Reviews in History (history.ac.uk/reviews)

'… [a] comprehensive survey of the surviving manuscripts … Very much a labour of love, Allmand's survey is a valuable addition to our understanding of medieval mentalités.' Nicholas Vincent, History

'The De Re Militari of Vegetius is a valuable work and required reading for anyone interested in medieval military history.' Bernard S. Bachrach, War in History

Book Description

Vegetius' late Roman text became a best-selling military 'classic' in the Middle Ages, and this fascinating study explores its reception and transmission. Although always read principally as a work offering practical military advice, the text was also transformed into an authority on war and inspired unexpected developments in the medieval world.
