This is probably aimed at boys aged 10-16, but I am an adult and I loved it. It is a fantastic introduction to the Roman army, and is also quite detailed too. There are illustrations and full colour photos to complement the text. It probably doesn't manage to convince you that it is an actual manual to the ancient Roman army, but you learn so much and have such fun along the way - who cares! Absolutely every young teenage boy who has a passing interest in Roman warfare should read this book; and absolutely any adult who suffers from Roma-mania should read it - it is neither childish nor heavy reading.
