Hardback. 208p b/w illus col pls (Thames and Hudson 2009).

Lighthearted and humorous, this book, packaged as a guide for someone wishing to join the Roman army in around AD 100, is nevertheless a mine of information. It carries advice on almost every aspect of soldiering from signing up to retirement. It describes the ways in which a military career might pan out, from a cushy (and comparatively brief) stint in the praetorian guard, to a distinctly less enticing stretch in the auxiliaries or navy. And along the way there is all sorts of detail on rules and regulations, kit, drill, the various places to which you might be posted and duties you might expect to fulfill as well as tips and techniques for actual fighting and briefings on the different "people who will want to kill you".
