A Solid Book About the Roman Army

"The Roman Army" reminds me of a children's version of an Osprey Military Uniform book. The strength of the book is its focus on the material culture of the Roman Legionaire. There are many well done illustrations of the tools, armor and weapons of the ordinary soldiers. The story line follows a legionaire from recruitment, training and out onto the battlefield. This is all done very competently. However, any children's book on the Roman Army has to compare itself against any of Peter Connolly's magnificent books on the Roman Army. This is a good book but not in the same league as any of Peter Connolly's work.

Ideal reading for children ages 6 to 10

Ideal reading for children ages 6 to 10, Dyan Blacklock's The Roman Army is a wonderful introduction to the Roman army of the second century AD. Their responsibility was to protect and expand the Roman Empire. David Kennett's superbly illustrations perfectly showcase an informed and informative text. The Roman Army is a clearly recommended addition to any school or community library collection -- and "must" reading for any boy or girl wanting to know more about one of the most successful armies in antiquity.
