Read full description of the books Legions of Rome: The Definitive History of Every Imperial Roman Legion:The complete history of every Imperial Roman legion and what it achieved as a fighting force, by an award-winning historian
In this landmark publication, Stephen Dando-Collins does what no other author has ever attempted to do: provide a complete history of every Imperial Roman legion. Based on thirty years of meticulous research, he covers every legion of Rome in rich detail. In the first part of the book, the author provides a detailed account of what the legionaries wore and ate, what camp life was like, what they were paid, and how they were motivated and punished. Part two examines the histories of all the legions that served Rome for three hundred years starting in 30 BC. The book's final section is a sweeping chronological survey of the campaigns in which the armies were involved, told from the point of view of the legions. Featuring more than 150 maps, photographs, diagrams and battle plans, Legions of Rome is an essential read for ancient history enthusiasts, military history experts and general readers alike.
Read information about the authorStephen Dando-Collins is an award-winning author whose 40th book will be published in 2017. His work includes children's novels and biographies, with the bulk of his books dealing with military history ranging from Greek and Roman times to American 19th century history and World I and Word War II, the next being THE BIG BREAK: The Greatest American WWII POW Escape Story Never Told. Many of his books have been translated into foreign languages including Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Albanian and Korean. Considered an authority on the legions of ancient Rome, his most recent work on the subject, 2012's LEGIONS OF ROME, is the culmination of decades of research into the individual imperial legions. As he has with THE BIG BREAK, Dando-Collins aims to travel roads that others have not, unearthing new facts and opening new perspectives on often forgotten or overlooked aspects of history. Lieutenant Colonel Dave Grossman, author of On Combat and On Killing, describes Dando-Collins as 'a Cornelius Ryan (A Bridge Too Far), a Stephen Ambrose (Band of Brothers), for a new generation.'
