A meticulously detailed account of life as a Roman legionary in the last days of the Roman Empire—from battle to rations, camp duties to clothing In 400 AD, Roman rule in Britain was collapsing as the thinly stretched empire was besieged on all sides. This guide explores all aspects of Late Roman military life, from recruitment to weaponry, marriage to wages, warfare to religion. It explores the world of the Roman soldier through the eyes of one man, posted to a British garrison at the edge of the empire, and follows the soldier's life through training, battle, marriage, and business dealings, finally following him south as he leaves Britain for good in defense of Rome. When the legionary finally escapes the worst posting in the Roman Empire, it is only to join what effectively became a death march over the Alps, without food or shelter. Readers of this mesmerizing account will know what it was like to face the chanted battle cry and the charge and slashing axes of the Goths, and why the order "March out!" was so terrifying.
