Your emperor needs you for the Roman army The year is AD 100 and Rome stands supreme and unconuerable from the desert sands of Mesopotamia to the misty highlands of Caledonia Yet the might of Rome rests completely on the ard shoulders of the legionaries who hold back the barbarian hordes and push forward the frontiers of empireThis care. What a wonderful surprise I thought purchasing Legionary would be an impulse buy as most of books with a description like this tend to be of low uality with lots of fanboy ism Not this one which makes me glad and positively surprised for purchasing itIt really reads as a manual how to guide of the life of a Roman legionary with details about the status of the empire at the time 100AD Nice details references very well articulated and while it is a contemporary book hence an anachronism things are somehow in place in a way that is very difficult to describe but very easy to feel while reading itGood intro to the subject about an era that I want to learn about Next stop The Jewish War by Flavius Josephus

Legionary: The Roman Soldier's (Unofficial) Manual characters ä eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ä Your emperor needs you for the Roman army The year is AD 100 and Rome stands supreme and unconuerable from the desert sands of Mesopotamia to the misty highlands of Caledonia Yet the might of Rome restCussed from drill to diet with handy tips on topics such as how to select the best boots or how to avoid being skewered by enemy spears Combining the latest archaeological discoveries with the written records of those who actually saw the Roman legions in action this book provides a vivid picture of what it meant to be a Roman legionary. This was one of the entertaining reads regarding the Roman military I've come across It's billed as a sort of a New Recruit's Guide to the Legions and the author manages to weave humor into rich historical detail regarding the myriad facets of the Imperial Army during Trajan's reign I recommend it to anyone new to the study of the Roman Army or even the Roman Empire itself It's worth the day or so it'll take to read Will likely read again in the future especially when I start getting my kit together for reenactments
