Romans, your Emperor needs you! Are you ready to become a Roman Legionary?

The year is ad 100 and Rome stands supreme and unconquerable, from the desert sands of Mesopotamia to the misty highlands of Caledonia. Far from the glittering centre of imperial power, the humble legionary holds back barbarian hordes and conquers new frontiers. On his armoured shoulders rests the might of Rome. 

This book 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. Combining the latest discoveries with contemporary accounts, this book paints a vivid picture of life in the Roman legions.  It will have immense appeal to all those who enjoy ancient history, but who want to be entertained at the same time.
