You are the general in the Roman army who is about to 'conquer a barbarian region' to add to the Roman Empire. How do you plan your attack? How does your army run? Once you take over this new land, how will you lead the people? In a factual way with no nonsense, this book lays out how Roman armies were organized, what an army camp looked like, what your weapons will do and what they'll look like, how you'll build your fort, and how to rule the land once you've won the battle. What made these Roman governors successful? Did they have a secret weapon? The diagrams are well laid out, clearly labeled and colorful. There's also a helpful timeline in the back and a good glossary.
