A great introduction to the dynamics of the Roman Army. Military manuals are known to have been used by the Roman Army, and this book provides an educational but entertaining way of putting ancient history into modern hands. The tone of the handbook is informal, which is far more appealing to students than a dry textbook. The language used promotes interactivity, and addresses the reader directly. There are also mini quizzes throughout the book.
