Praise for Guy de la Bédoyere:
"In his encyclopedic Gladius, Guy de la Bédoyère collects pretty much every fact known about what it was like to be in the military arm of the Roman Empire."-- "Thomas E. Ricks, The New York Times Book Review"
"A splendid book that brings to life in its scholarship and animated style the lives of some of the most remarkable soldiers the world has ever seen. Gladius will be an absolute delight for those who are fascinated by the life and achievements of the world's first and probably greatest professional army."-- "Military History Matters"
"Gladius is a highly successful introduction to the life of the Roman soldier. Making use of a wide range of sources, from stone inscriptions to colorful anecdotes, de la Bédoyère's informative and readable book offers real immediacy to readers."--Clifford Ando, University of Chicago
"Gladius is a necessary work for scholars of Roman history, but will also prove interesting and informative reading for the armchair historian."-- "New York Military Affairs Review"
"An illuminating and highly readable narrative about the role of women at the center of imperial Rome--fascinating and important."--Lesley Adkins, author of Handbook to Life in Ancient Rome
"The dramatic story of the soldiers at the heart of the Roman empire. Lively and full of insight, de la Bedoyere traces the history of the praetorians and the emperors they served, murdered and made, through three hundred years of intrigue and drama."--Adrian Goldsworthy, author of Philip and Alexander: Kings and Conquerors
"A lively and up-to-date history of the Praetorian Guard, the anti-coup divisions of the Roman emperors from Augustus to Constantine. De la Bédoyère tells their story with clarity and panache, and his book can be most warmly recommended both to aspiring tyrants and the ordinary armchair historian."-- "The Sunday Times (London)"
"A scrupulous yet accessible history of ancient Egypt under the 18th Dynasty. Complemented by striking illustrations and valuable appendices, this impressive survey will be welcomed by ancient history buffs."-- "- Publishers Weekly "
