As well as describing the changes in the army over the centuries, The Roman Army also sheds light on the talented men who led these soldiers in battle and the momentous battles fought, including Cannae, Pharsalus, and Adrianople. Illustrated with detailed maps, artwork and photographs, this volume provides a complete reference to the Roman Army from the 8th century BC to the period after the fall of the Western Roman Empire in the 5th century AD.

"As with all of Osprey's books, this one is full of detailed drawing and maps to enable the reader to easily follow the army's progress from its humble birth to its transformation into the stuff of legend." - Military Heritage, December 2010
"This book is a must for anyone interested in ancient history. And, best of all, while the original hardcover copy was reviewed here, an even cheaper paperback edition was released in 2012!"
