"A unique and splendidly researched story, following the trials and triumphs of Julius Caesara s Legio X--arguably the most famous legion of its day--from its activation to the slogging battle of Munda and from Thapsus, Caesara s tactical masterpiece, to the grim siege of the Jewish fortress of Masada. More than a mere unit account, it incorporates the history of Rome and the Roman army at the height of their power and gory glory. Many military historians consider Caesara s legions the worlda s most efficient infantry before the arrival of gunpowder. This book shows why. Written in readable, popular style, Caesara 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 Comanches Stephen Dando--Collins paints a vivid and definitive portrait of daily life in the Tenth Legion as he follows Caesar and his men along the blood--soaked fringes of the Empire.
This unprecedented regimental history reveals countless previously unknown details about Roman military practices, Caesara s conduct as a commander and his relationships with officers and legionaries, and the daily routine and discipline of the Legion. From penetrating insights into the mind of historya s greatest general to a grunta s--eye view of the gruesome realities of war in the Classical Age, this unique and riveting true account sets a new standard of exellence and detail to which all authors of ancient military history will now aspire.
