This is an excellent book, lavishly illustrated with full colour drawings and photographs of re-enactors, showing a vast array of equipment, weapons and even food used by the Roman army in the given period.

The book is divided into 4 sections with a couple of appendices. It has a brief overview, two chapters on the major reformations and the final chapter, which is the meat of the book, covers all the various equipment.

Each section is, as I mentioned, very well illustrated and these are what makes this book stand out above the other sort of books like this. It has a wealth of coverage for the historian, modeller or general enthusiast. The text is informative without getting bogged down and easy to read

I have no problem giving this book 5 stars.
