Roman Warfare

Roman Warfare Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Romans built, and maintained, perhaps the greatest empire of all time--forged with an unequaled skill in warfare and a willingness to commit savagery in the name of victory. Accompany these unparalleled troops from the conquest of Italy on to world conquest. Watch as defeated armies became allies who join later battles, and consider the irony of extreme brutality bringing peace and prosperity to much of the empire. All the techniques and the organization of this amazingly advanced fighting force come into focus--the drills, superior technology, uniform and command structure, and the complex bureaucracy that ran it all.

Synopsis:

The Romans built perhaps the greatest empire of all time, forged with an unequalled skill in warfare. Accompany these unparalleled troops from the conquest of Italy through to world conquest. Watch as defeated armies became allies and future Roman soldiers. Consider the irony of extreme brutality and repression leading to peace and prosperity. All the techniques and the organization of this amazingly advanced fighting force come into focus, from the emphasis on drills to its superior technology and complex bureaucracy.

Synopsis:

Roman warfare was relentless in its pursuit of victory, with its uncompromising and total destruction of enemies, resulting in the creation of the Empire. This is a history of Roman warfare from 753 BC, the traditional date of the foundation of Rome, to the decline and fall of the Empire.
