    A real eye opener

    This book is very well written and well illustrated. It goes through the changes the Roman armies go through as time moves on. And while it provides plenty of information it gives you a different perspective of what the Romans philosophy of warfare was at different times. Though the author sometimes gets lost and strays from the subject he still keeps your attention. The book includes many illustrations of the battles and gives you a better idea of what happened and shows the genius of some generals like Caesar and Hannibal. Overall it is good reading and a very good book for research.

    History Through Pictures

    Roman enthusiasts will be disappointed with this book. . The lifespan of the empire is broken down into several stages and an attempt is made at describing both the political climate and status of the army at the time. Unfortunately these descriptions are backed with seemingly random examples that are often times only marginally related in the first place. Little regard is given to a following a time line so the reader is propelled forward and back through time in a nauseating fashion. Very little analytical or critical discussion is given to any situation. The effect is that the reader is introduced to several topics at a glance and then hurled off onto another digression. Material is presented in a fashion that leaves the reader feeling disconnected and unfulfilled. Readers that prefer a more visual book may enjoy this title. From cover to cover it is filled with pictures of art, maps and photographs. Readers that have little or no experience with Roman history may find themselves swept up with ancient renditions of generals on graphic display, but more serious scholars will not find much value from this title.

    Read this book!

    This was the first book on Rome that I have owned, and I have learned alot from it. I think it gives a good description of the army and how it operated. I also learned things I had never known about Rome's emperors from this book. Reading this book also helped me in history class with Rome. This is an excellent book and I highly recomend reading it
