Descripción

The legions that carved out and defended the Roman Empire depended upon the strength of the Roman fleet and the fighting prowess of its seamen and embarked soldiers. This fascinating history, covering the Roman navy from the batle of Actium to the fall of the Western Empire, examines the ships, weapons, clothing, and organization of its sailors and fleet soldiers. It is illustrated with sculptures, mosaics and archaelogical finds, and the colour plates offer detailed reconstructions of Imperial Rome’s naval troops, from admirals and ships’ officers to seamen and marines.
