For the Glory of Rome Ancient Rome was uniquely bellicose. Her legions marched out to war every year and the fury of legionaries in combat was terrible. Officers and common soldiers gloried in single combat, taking heads and despoiling their enemies. Long before the Vikings emerged, Roman warriors were discarding their armor to fight berserk and bare-chested in battle, going so far as to maul opponents with their bare Full description

Anecdotal Joy for serious students and those casually interested in Romans at war 31 janvier 2008
Par Sojourner Wolf - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Informative without being pedantic, light enough for pleasurable reading but by no means fluff, For the Glory Of Rome brings to life the Roman legionnaire in a fresh and exhilirating way. The author describes Roman military men as both soldiers and warriors, by no means always the ant-like disciplined troops as they are so often portrayed. Single combat, the "unofficial" rules and specific episodes, brings the participants to life worthy of the great illustrations, graphic and photographic. Not just the Romans, but their enemies are written with vivid empathy. Tired of wading through Tacitus? This book is the sort of change of pace that can revive flagging interest or spark a new one.

A survey of the role of single combat in battle 6 août 2007
Par Midwest Book Review - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Ross Cowan's FOR THE GLORY OF ROME: A HISTORY OF WARRIORS AND WARFARE provides a survey of the Roman warrior, an analysis of strategy and campaigns, and a survey of the role of single combat in battle. College-level and in-depth collections strong in ancient military history will appreciate the depth of analysis here, which examines individuals and warriors, from their techniques to their motivations in defending the Roman Empire with their lives.

Warriors and Soldiers in Rome's Legions 7 avril 2008
Par Agustin Guerrero - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The author gives us a distinct perspective in the military history of the Legions of Rome and that is through the eyes of the soldiers. He confronts the idealized version of the roman legionnaire as perfectly disciplines quasi robotic killing machine and present us men in the flesh with their passions and flaws. The Romans presented were passionate warriors fighting at first for the survival of their city always surmounting great odds until they became the dominant power in the Mediterranean world and ultimately defend the vast empire against mass invasions of Barbarian nations. We are presented in detail with the campiagn of Pyrrhus of Epirus and his surprise at the discipline and valor displayed by the Romans confronting him, the role of single combat in deciding battles, the blood thirst but also the nobler passions such as the self sacrifice of the Roman commanders in order to achieve victory displayed by the Greatest warriors of the ancient world as were the Romans. This is a nice read and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The subject is one of my favorites, however this effort is not anywhere near notable. Dry, segments of text from the classical works just don't "grip" this reader.
Adds to Our Understanding of the Roman Legionary and Rome 25 novembre 2012
Par bonnie_blu - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Cowan analyzes the Roman legionary as an individual person by focusing on specific legionaries and battles. Luckily there are epigraphic sources that name individual soldiers, and Cowan uses this information fully. Overall he provides a new view of the legionary that adds to our understanding of ancient Rome and the legions. He does go off on irrelevant tangents occasionally, but it does not distract from the overall value of the book.
