Product description

Now available in paperback, The Imperial Roman Army looks at the structure and development of the army between the Republic and the Late Empire, examining why the army has always been accorded such a prominent position in the history of the Roman Empire, and whether that view is justified. The book is divided into three sections. The author first examines the major divisions of army organization, the legions, the auxiliary units, the fleet and how the men were recruited. Secondly he looks at what the army did, their training, tactics and strategy. Finally he considers the historical role of the army and how it fitted into Roman society.

Review quote

'An essential purchase, the most helpful The Roman Army where the chapters on "the practical role" and "cultural influence" are not to be missed even by those whose interest in things military are slight.' - Greece and Rome
