The year is AD100 and Rome stands supreme and unconquerable, from the desert sands of Mesopotamia to the misty highlands of Caledonia. But the might of Rome rests entirely on the shoulders of the legionaries, who stand strong against the barbarian hordes, pushing back the frontiers of the empire. This book - a kind of 'unofficial guide' for the new recruit, written in the same engaging and informative style as Ancient Rome on Five Denarii a Day - tells you how to get in and get on in the legions, the best places to serve, life in camp, on campaign and in battle, and such things as how to stop your armour going rusty and how to storm a city. It will have immense appeal to all those who enjoy ancient history, but who want to be entertained at the same time.

...usually checked out for a school project, but students report reading the entire book for pleasure after the fact. A fascinating little handbook of serious scholarship and irrepressible wit, Legionary vividly illuminates military life in ancient Rome. " usually checked out for a school project, but students report reading the entire book for pleasure after the fact." A very useful introduction to military practice in the late First Century. Highly informative and readable volume lays out in detail the high honor and great risk of defending Rome as a foot soldier.... The author knows his subject thoroughly and presents it with flare, a touch of humor, and authority. The many illustrations, including 16 color plates, add measurably to the enjoyment of the book.... Will more than satisfy.
