So You Want to Be a Roman Soldier

This humorous and handy guide contains all the information aspiring legionaries need to know about life in the Roman army. Expert tips include: how to care for your Roman sandals; how to operate a catapult; what to wear and not to wear on campaign; how to sack a city; and how to avoid getting a javelin through your skull.

Based on the bestselling book Legionary, by Roman history scholar, Philip Matyszak, So you want to be a Roman soldier? features the latest scholarship and is illustrated throughout with the zany illustrations of Japanese cartoonist, Takayo Akiyama. The result is a book that brings to life the experience of being a Roman soldier in 100 ce from dealing with stinky bunk mates to surviving bloody battles through a crew of likeable (as well as highly disagreeable) characters.
