Feb 06, Erik rated it really liked it. This was a surprise little gem which I really enjoyed. The book is filled with tremendous details of the attire, armor, and army life for the common Roman military man.
The plates, pictures, and photos of re-enactors were very useful and a real aid for those of you who might paint miniatures, which I do. My only knock on the book is minor, which is the accuracy of said re-enactors. While they are a serious lot, they don’t always get things right.
There is a great deal of debate over the uniforms This was a surprise little gem which I really enjoyed.
There is a great deal of debate over the uniforms of the Optio for example, and the latest research tends to support a significantly different set of dress as compared to the pictures in the book.
The author is also heavily invested in the re-enactment field, and may not be the highest pedigree for using as a source. This is not a slight, as the work here is excellent and well worth reading. I am simply being clear he is not a major university historian. There are few references provided as well, a personal “no-no” for me. Overall, the book was very good and a real pleasure to read. The visual stimulation was perfect for miniature painting and the information contained useful and mostly accurate.
This book earned an honest 4 Stars and will get heavy use in my library for sure. Sep 27, Olethros rated it liked it. Lo que nos cuenta. Apr 21, John Richards rated it it was amazing. Great book for one interested in ancient warfare and Roman Legions in particular. I especially liked the many photos and illustrations that helped one understand and visually see armor and weapons.
