Osprey Warrior 71 : Imperial Roman Legionary 31 BC - 43 AD

The period 31 BC- 43 AD saw the greatest expansion of the Roman Empire. In 31 BC Ceasar Octavian defeated Antony at the battle of Actium and remodeled the semi-professional Roman army into a permanent force of 28 legions. Ceasar Octavian became the first Roman Emperor - Emporer Augustus - and under his leadership the legions conquered northern Spain, all Europe south of the Danube line and Germany west of the Elbe. The legionaries exemplified the heroic culture of the Roman world and this book takes a behind the scenes look at their lives, training, weaponry and tactics, recounting their battles including the bloody massacre of the Teutoberg forest. Text by Ross Cowan with illustrations by Angus McBride.
