Overview

The Making of the Roman Army explores how a small citizen militia guarding a village on the banks of the Tiber evolved into the professional Roman army. Lawrence Keppie pays particular attention to the transitional period between Republic and Empire - the time of Julius Caesar, Mark Antony, and Augustus. Keppie overcomes the traditional dichotomy between a historical view of the Republic and an archaeological approach to the Empire by making the most of the often overlooked archaeological evidence from the earlier years.

Not "another" book about battles and tactics,there are too many of them already. Rather this book traces the development of institutions and traditions starting with a local militia in ca 570 BC to guard a village on the Tiber (Rome) to the chaos of the transition from Republic to Empire (47BC-14AD) Well laced with names of men and of places and supplemented by informative Appendices, a Glossary, and extensive notes, reference list and bibliography, the book will please those who want a coherent story but begin to look for more detail.
