"Rise of Rome covers the period 280BC to 25BC, taking in the most significant wars of Republican Rome. The book contains 18 armies: the Romans, their enemies such as Carthage and the Seleucods, and significant allies. Each army has several pages giving it a quick start list and a more extensive list for choosing a bigger army to a points value. The lists are accompanied by historical notes and pictures. There is also a short history of the period, a single battle description with map, and a section on doing themed tournaments." -Richard Milner, DAKKA DAKKA

On Rise of Rome and Storm of Arrows:

"[These are Field of Glory's] two companions, providing detailed army lists for their respective periods covering every conceivable opponent - and quite a few that I hadn't even heard of despite what I thought was extensive reading about both periods... Highly recommended..." -John Prigent, Internet Modeler (March 2008)

Both "offer fine companion volumes for players, providing clear specifics on regional battles and history. Hundreds of researched troop types are accompanied by maps, art and overviews perfect for military libraries and any specializing in wargaming." -California Bookwatch (April 2008)
