Riassunto: The third century AD was a turbulent and testing time for the Roman Empire. A new and powerful foe in the east had risen up to challenge Rome directly. Barbarians on the northern frontiers were now more aggressive and more numerous than before and internally the population of the empire had to contend with rampant inflation and a series of terrible plagues. Unfortunately, the chaos became magnified by a lack of continuity on the imperial throne. The army had real political power in the third century, making and unmaking emperors as it saw fit. It had been aided in this by Septimius Severus, the African emperor who had won out in the civil wars following Commodus? assassination. He increased the army?s pay and granted other privileges. While the army gained rapidly in size, stature and political savvy during the reign of Septimius Severus, it also accelerated a material transformation. Armor, shields, helmets, swords and javelins all began to be replaced with new styles. Legions in Crisis looks closely at the new styles of arms and armor, comparing their construction, use and effectiveness to the more familiar types of Roman kit used by soldiers fighting the earlier Dacian and Marcomannic Wars. What did this transformation in military technology mean for the tactical choices used on the battlefield? Although the outcome had looked in doubt, the army and the empire it protected weathered the storm to emerge into the fourth century fully able to tackle the challenges of a new age.

Descrizione libro HB, 160 ppPublished Price £18.99 The Roman Empire stumbled and almost fell in the 3rd century AD, weighed down by civil war, usurpers, invasion, plague and inflation. Rome teetered on the brink of disaster. Legions in Crisis looks at the crippling body blows inflicted on the Roman Empire during this 3rd century trauma. In particular it charts the changes that the legions underwent, sometimes by imperial decree, at other times through necessity. The idea of the legions as an unchangeable, undefeatable elite is challenged here as we see the army transformed along with its equipment and weaponry. The book begins by explaining how the changes in the period 200 300 first came about, moves on to look in detail at the legions and how they started to differ in organisation and weaponry to those of the past, then moves back to chart the bloody military history of the end of the 3rd century. Key events that shape our understanding are explained, including the rise of Septimius Severus, the fall of Dura Europus and the tough stance of the eastern queen, Zenobia. Discussion of artefacts, equipment, clothing and weaponry is enhanced through the experiments and reconstructions of the author who has specialized in the 3rd century Roman period.
