CARACALLA A Military Bibliography

£25.00 £6.99

This excellent biography is a much needed examination of the military history of the Severan age, that it began with the then largest and longest civil war in Roman history, and concluded with the epic military debacle that proved to be the last wind of the Parthians
The strengths of Sylvanne’s book are his analyses of the various military forces arrayed during the age of Caracalla. Starting with a long-needed examination as to how the Roman military system had changed from the cohortal legion of Marius, Caesar and Trajan to something akin to a Greek phalanx, how the segmented armour, Gallic helmet, short gladius and pilum of the past gave way to new gear that would be with Roman troops until the start of the Dark Ages.
