Contents include the organization, structure, equipment, weapons, combat history and tactics of the late Roman military forces. Through the pages and magnificent colour plates of this book you will find limitanei, comitatenses, foederati, bucellarii, scholae palatinae, protectores and much more. The origins and causes for the military decline of the Empire are discussed in detail, as well as the influence of the “barbarian” peoples over the Roman Army. The text includes also a very detailed order of battle, based on the Notitia Dignitatum and listing all the military forces of the Roman Empire between 395-410 AD. Combined with the original art work by well-known military artist Giuseppe Rava, this book will be a must for students of military history, re-enactors, modellers, wargamers and people interested in military dress or organization.
I can't find another review anywhere else . Are you the author ?

Since this thread hasn't been updated in a year, I thought I'd reach out to y'all to say I've been on a bit of a Roman kick recently. My tastes previously have been far to the later periods (Byzantine and Ottoman Eras), and when I do my reading I tend to get far too absorbed in a single period for a while then move on.

I'm looking to expand my modest library with a few select books on Rome. I have copies of certain classics (like Caesar's writings from Gaul and Gibbon's Rise and Fall) but I was looking for something a bit more contemporary.

So I'm happy to hear if anyone has any particularly juicy selections on offer, because I trust y'all to know a lot more on who would be a good (and respected author).

I do have a copy of Everitt's Augustus and Holland's Rubicon on my shelf that I picked up years ago for a discount, but I can't speak to their quality. So if anyone has any personal favorites, I'm all ears.

Anything about Greek history fascinates me! I remember buying books about mythology and Greek wars a few years back.

^ Can't go wrong with Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War. Really it's a must read, and very applicable to contemporary politics, as well.

Holland's Rubicon is very good. Highly recommended. Everitt's Cicero is better than Augustus, but both are well written. I'm itching to buy Holland's Dynasty which is the sequel to Rubicon.

How about Mary Beard's SPQR: History of Ancient Rome? Her book is highly regarded in the study of ancient Rome. Think you will love it as it focuses more on social context of Roman Empire.
