Roman Legionary: 58BC - AD69!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Roman Legionary 58 BC-AD 69 (Warrior) (Paperback)
Another great little title from Osprey packed full of details and wonderful images. This book starts at the beginning before the legions became professional to when Octavian (Augustus) formed them into full time soldiers and formed permanent armies. The Osprey books are great but short and quite expensive for what you get length wise, especially compared to a novel for example but your paying for the content, research, art, historical accuracy etc etc. Shop around and you will find good deals.
Highly recommended if you are merely interested in the topic or want specific details about the subject for research or something more, fantastic little books!
