A magnificent full color book on the life and times of the Roman Legions, illustrated with over 35 pieces of original color artwork and more than 100 color photographs of equipment, weapons, and reenactments.
The book includes historical timelines and detailed data tables on everything from the cost of living during the second century to pay scales in the Roman army, as well as superb graphics depicting legion deployment and formation during battle.
The detail in this book will be of enormous interest to the growing community of reenactors in the USA, depicting images from two famous European reenactment groups, Britain’s ‘Ermine Street Guard’ and ‘Gemini Project Reenactment Group’ from the Netherlands. The reenactor photographs enable the reader to see items of Legionary equipment up close and in detail.
Chapters include information on Roman legion’s hierarchy structure, the legions and their men, the legions and their equipment and further chapters on strategy and tactics. A bonus is a sidebar feature depicting a fictionalized account of the life of a legionary in battle.
