The Making of the Roman Army: From Republic to Empire

The Making of the Roman Army: From Republic to Empire Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Book News Annotation:

Examines the evolution of the Roman army from a small citizen militia guarding a village on the banks of the Tiber to a formidable professional army in the mid-first century AD. First published in 1948 by B.T. Batsford, with a 1987 revision and reprints in 1988 and 1991; this new edition includes a new preface and an updated bibliography.
