Goldsworthy examines how the Roman army operated on campaign and in battle. He compares the army's organization and strategic doctrine with those of its chief opponents and explores in detail the reality of battle: tactics, weaponry, leadership, and, most of all, the important issue of morale.

Adrian Goldsworthy, Research Fellow, University of Wales, Cardiff.Review:
`Meticulously researched and well written, it addresses every aspect of the army as a fighting force. The Roman Army at War falls into that most welcome category of books with proper footnotes ... The whole package is wrapped up with a refreshingly comprehensive bibliography ... the work he has compiled will keep this reviewer quite satisfied for the foreseeable future.' Duncan B. Campbell, Britannia
`He has written a book about the realities of warfare in the early Empire and we should be truly grateful.' Hugh Elton, Trinity College, Hartford, CT, Journal of Roman Studies
`The book does what it sets out to do, namely, it emphasizes the inherent flexibility of the Roman legion.' Bryn Mawr Classical Review
