Early Roman Warfare.

Early Roman Warfare.

Much is written on the later Republic or the Imperial period of the Roman army, but this work traces the development of Rome's military might from its earliest discernible origins down to the First Punic War. It shows how the armies evolved from ad-hoc forces of warriors organized along clan lines to defend a city's survival, to the sophisticated organisations of the legions that conquered the entire Mediterranean world.
