Reviews

""The legions' foremost living historian."" Arts & Letters Monthly, U.S.


"A very fine historian." --Phillip Adams, ABC Late Night Live

"A gifted storyteller." --The Independent Weekly

""Absorbing . . . Military history is the muscle of this book, with enough political sinews to give it coherence." --Washington Times, for Caesar's Legion

"Unique and splendidly researched . . . Many military historians consider Caesar's legions the world's most efficient infantry before the arrival of gunpowder. This book shows why. Written in readable, popular style, Caesar's Legion is a must for military buffs and anyone interested in Roman history at a critical point in European civilization." --T. R. Fehrenbach, author of This Kind of War, Lone Star, and Commanches, for Caesar's Legion
