Descriptions du produit

Roman Republican Legionary, 298-105 BC Soon after the Caudine Forks fiasco, where Roman citizens had suffered the humiliation of being forced to pass under the yoke, an act symbolising their loss of warrior status, the tactical formation adopted by the Roman army underwent a radical change. Introduced as part of the Servian reforms, the legion had originally operated as a Greek-style phalanx, a densely packed block of citizens wealthy ... Full description

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Portrait du meilleur soldat de l'antiquité 31 août 2012
Par Semper Victor COMMENTATEUR DU HALL D'HONNEUR TOP 10 COMMENTATEURS
Format:Broché
Le « Roman Republican Legionary 298-105 BC » de Nic Fields, illustré par huit planches originales de Seán Ó'Brógáin, s’attache aux légions manipulaires classiques, celles qui ont vaincu les Samnites, les Carthaginois et les armées des royaumes hellénistiques.

Il est question d’organisation, d’équipement, d’entraînement mais aussi de techniques de combat et de ravitaillement en campagne. Un Osprey classique et de qualité.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Romans at War. 23 septembre 2012
Par Michael Reese - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
A companion to the post Republican volume. Ths book traces the development of the first Roman armies from the armed citizen throngs through the phalanx into the adoption of the gladius and pilum and large shield, with three lines of formed, well trained trips. This is the army that conquered the Med. Background on formations, new weapons, conscription, equipment and tactics. A good background plus details and where no complete factual evidence is available, a logical explanation of the most likely direction taken by the Romans. Recommended.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Pleasing text in a rarely described area 26 juin 2012
Par Ben Kane - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
At the Chester Roman festival recently, I was delighted to meet the illustrator and fellow Irishman, Sean O Brogain. I was even more pleased when he produced a copy of this book, the publication of which had slipped past me. One of the great things about Osprey is the way that they slowly but surely provide us with texts (and illustrations) for areas that aren't well covered.

Most people choose to read about the imperial period of Rome, but there's easily as much history before Augustus, the first emperor, as there is after him. The period covered in this book covers the change in legionaries from men who fought in a phalanx formation to those who fought in the manipular fashion, right down to the changes made by Gaius Marius circa 105-100 BC.

Expect the usual Osprey sections on organisation, unit size, training, equipment and weapons. There are also sections about campaigning and battle. It's well-written for the most part, although in some sections the text is a little 'clunky'. There's a good chronology at the start, and a decent bibliography. The illustrations, as expected, are excellent. Well worth the money. Readers who want more in depth discussion of equipment and weaponry of this and other periods might like the fantastic Roman Military Equipment: From The Punic Wars To The Fall Of Rome by Bishop & Coulston. There are other good Osprey titles based in this period too, including Early Roman Armies and Republican Roman Army 200-104 BC.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good overview of manipular legionaries 11 mai 2013
Par JPS - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is a good presentation and introduction to Roman legionaries from BC 298, the reorganization of the Roman army in manipules and the beginning of the third and last war against the Samnites to the rise of Marius and the eve of his own military reforms on 105 BC.

This little Osprey volume displays the usual structure that can be found in the series, with introduction and chronology, origins of the manipular legion, recruitment, training and organization, followed by a piece on appearance and equipment. The book ends with a section on the legionary during campaigns and another one on his "experience of battle".

By and large, and for those that already know quite a bit on this period, there is little new or original. Even these, however, will find value in this book because it clearly illustrates the hybrid and transition Roman army and its shift from a hoplite type organization to what would become the "classic" Roman legions by the time of Marius. For those who are new to the subject, however, and those who are looking for some rather vivid visual illustrations, this book will be fine for you.

Both the contents and the eight plates are, however, well presented and thought out. The plates in particular are distributed throughout the book to cover evenly most of the sections: recruitment, training, one for equipment of first and third line infantry, and one for cavalry and then one each for battles on land, on sea and for siege. A minor gripe here is that there is - oddly - no plate for the Principes - the second line of legionaries. A minor positive is that the plates allow the reader to get a clear grasp of Roman equipment, and Roman helmets in particular, of the time.

A final merit of this book is to explain the advantages that the manipular formation allowed the Romans to build over their various foes, whether the Carthaginians, which initially were using a hoplite type organization, the Gauls, or the Hellenistic monarchs and their pike phalanxes which was itself an evolution from the hoplite phalanx. A related feature is to show through the equipment section how versatile the Romans were and would remain for centuries in adopting pieces of equipment (with the gladius being one of the most well-known examples) from their foes and improving on them.

Two final remarks need to be made, however. One is that the book does contain a number of repetitions which may be mildly annoying for some. Another element is that the text is very largely inspired from Keppie's "The Making of the Roman Army: From Republic to Empire" to the extent that, at times, it almost reads like a shortened version.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent overview on the Roman Legionary of Mid-Republican period. 15 octobre 2012
Par Anibal Madeira - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Usually you have books devoted to the legionary of the late republican armies of Julius Caesar or imperial periods. This monograph is an extraordinary summary of the recruitment, training, equipment and campaign life of a roman legionary of the period of roman expansion. Selecting the rise of the manipular tactics until the reforms of Marius, Fields covers the period of the Punic wars, of the fights against the Hellenistic kingdoms, of the rise of Rome as a major power.

With a good chronology that saves immense space, the author focus on the main elements that define the roman warrior. How he was selected, how he fought, how he trained, how he was organized, what he wore and with what equipment he fought. In this book you will probably won't find any new data if you study this period, but you have here the perfect summary, concentrating in a small book several theories (like the maniple in combat for example, stating both the extended frontage and the vacant space), clear presentation of each subject, and intelligent analysis.

Nice pictures of artifacts, reliefs, sculptures and coinage gives the reader a good visual reference, completed by the very good plates by the resourceful and competent Seán Ó' Brógáin (the color plates are: Enlistment; Training; First-line legionary - hastatus; Third-line legionary - triarius; Eques; Battle on land; Battle at sea; Siege of syracuse, 214-212 BC). Few can depict military equipment with such remarkable details has this great welsh illustrator.

This work is far stronger than the previous man-at-arms book by the same publishing house titled "Republican Roman Army 200-104 BC". I strongly recommend this book as the perfect introduction on the roman legionary of the mid-republican period.
