The best available book on the roman army,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Roman Army at War 100 BC - AD 200 (Oxford Classical Monographs) (Paperback)
I have many books on the roman army but this one is by far the best. As the other reader pointed out this book has a completely different approach from the illustrated uniform and equipment guide which is very common. It examines the army from a much more humane perspective, exploring how the roman soldiers acted under the enormous strain of the bloody hand-to-hand combat. I could not praise this work enough. I only hope Mr.Goldsworthy would write onother book on the subject.
