" War in Late Antiquity is well informed, gives an excellent idea of what the sources are for the subject and treats many technical issues in a balanced and intelligent way. This is a book that anyone can read with profit." David S. Potter, University of Michigan
"Lee provides an authoritative and clear account of the social, economic and cultural structures which underpinned the army in the late Roman state, backed by an impressive range of evidence. The Roman empire may have fallen apart, but not without a long struggle and Lee well explains how its armies now fought under the protection of Christianity, that most militant of ancient religions, to preserve the state and its civilised elite."
Michael Whitby, University of Warwick
"A very useful contribution to the study of Roman military ... precise organization and ample references will make it easy to return to the book again and again."
Bryn Mawr Classical Review
