A Military History of the World's First Superpower From the Rise of the Republic and the Might of the Empire to the Fall of the West.

This authoritative, fact-filled history traces the growth of the Roman army from its early days as an unpaid citizen’s militia to its establishment as a world-conquering professional force. The book shows that at the very heart of imperial Rome's power stood her legionaries, highly trained, well-armoured heavy infantrymen who could fight in many different ways - storming fortresses, outfacing charging elephants and fighting onboard ships. The Roman army was more than just an army: as this history shows, in some ways it became the heart of Rome itself creating the world's first superpower.
