Roman Empire was one of the largest and most successful empires of all
time… Such a broad and diverse empire was difficult to control. This
complex and dangerous work was the job of one of the most fearsome forces
the world has ever seen – the Roman Army.” This clearly written, beautifully
illustrated book gives a full look at the Roman Empire’s legions, their
methods and their world. The detailed descriptive illustrations are fascinating:
try looking at them as if they were a “seek and find” picture puzzle. Do
you see a difference between a general and a centurion? (Jean B.
