Roman Empire takes over the world (a long time ago, don't worry)
The legions of Rome were apparently among the most awesome fighting forces in history. This book made me realise that. I became very, very impressed with the legions and the history behind all 45 legions ranging from 31 BC to the third century AD.
This book covers all 45 legions and we learn about their own individual wins and losses as they fought for the empire and enlarged its borders.
The book is divided into three sections and has lovely pictures and diagrams to help explain what was going on and when.
Pollard and Berry have compiled a great book sharing a lot of factual information, but told in an interesting day.
