EARLY ROMAN WARFARE


EARLY ROMAN WARFARE

JEREMY ARMSTRONG    Book Number: 85914    Product format: Hardback

Sub-titled 'From the First Regal Period to the First Punic War' the author reviews both the literary sources and the latest archaeological evidence to provide a fresh analysis of Roman military organisation, equipment, tactics and strategy. Copious amounts are being written about the Roman Army focussing on the later Republic or Imperial period when the legionary system was already well developed. Here Dr Jeremy Armstrong traces Rome's military might from its earliest discernible origins down to the First Punic War. He shows how her armies evolved from ad-hoc forces of warriors organised along clan lines and assembled for the city's survival, to the sophisticated organisation of the legions that went on to dominate all of Italy and the entire Mediterranean world. He shows how Rome's military apparatus adapted to meet the changing strategic needs of new enemies and broader ambitions. Chapters include The Army in the 5th Century, The Gallic Sack and Rome's Rebirth, and Rome and the Latins. Pen & Sword publication, 176pp.
