The Late Roman Army

Front Cover
Yale University Press, Jan 1, 1996 - History - 206 pages
From the end of the second century A.D., the Roman Empire was beset by internal unrest, revolts, usurpations, civil wars, and attacks along its far-flung frontiers. This stimulating book is the first comprehensive discussion of how the Roman army adapted itself to these growing threats and how effective it was in combating serious problems - sometimes several at once - during the late imperial period.
