Useful source book for wargamers,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Republican Roman Army 200-104 BC (Men-at-Arms) (Paperback)
This book will help you to decide how to construct and paint wargames armies, as well as being a very reasonable source for historical study of the Roman Army in the Second Century BC (and slightly earlier). This is the Army that fought Hannibal and was later reformed under Marius.
The text is both readable and scholarly - no mean feat. Well done the author!
Why only 3 stars? Well, there is very little information on the detailed stuff we wargames really care about - things like shield colours and patterns of decoration. The reason is almost certainly because the information does not exist so no blame to the author.
