    2. A very comprehensive work that covers all aspects of Roman Army Structure, logistics and encampment. If you need to research the subject I would highly recommend this work.

    3. Compact, complete work on the Roman Imperial Army that covers just about everything one would want to know about the legions, inlcuding how they were named and where they were stationed.
