"A unique and splendidly researched story, following the trials and triumphs of Julius Caesar's Legio X-arguably the most famous legion of its day-from its activation to the slogging battle of Munda and from Thapsus, Caesar's tactical masterpiece, to the grim siege of the Jewish fortress of Masada. More than a mere unit account, it incorporates the history of Rome and the Roman army at the height of their power and gory glory. Many military historians consider Caesar's legions the world's most efficient infantry before the arrival of gunpowder. This book shows why. Written in readable, popular style, Caesar's Legion is a must for military buffs and anyone interested in Roman history at a critical point in European civilization."
—T. R. Fehrenbach, author of This Kind of War, Lone Star, and Comanches

Stephen Dando-Collins paints a vivid and definitive portrait of daily life in the Tenth Legion as he follows Caesar and his men along the blood-soaked fringes of the Empire. This unprecedented regimental history reveals countless previously unknown details about Roman military practices, Caesar's conduct as a commander and his relationships with officers and legionaries, and the daily routine and discipline of the Legion. From penetrating insights into the mind of history's greatest general to a grunt's-eye view of the gruesome realities of war in the Classical Age, this unique and riveting true account sets a new standard of exellence and detail to which all authors of ancient military history will now aspire.

L'autore:

STEPHEN DANDO-COLLINS is an Australian-born researcher, editor, and author who has spent the last three decades identifying and studying the individual legions of the Roman army of the late Republic and the empire of the Caesars.

Dalla seconda/terza di copertina:

They were the most famous and accomplished military unit of their day, raised personally by Julius Caesar as the first step in his relentless quest for glory and power. Caesar?s Tenth Legion took the lead role in all of his battles, from their bloody initiation in Spain and Portugal to the conquest of Gaul, the invasion of Britain, and the battles of the civil war. In Caesar?s Legion, Stephen Dando-Collins provides an extraordinarily detailed history of the Tenth Legion?its officers, its men, and its incredible string of victories, which continued even after Caesar?s death with the Siege of Jerusalem.

Based on the author?s thirty years of painstaking research into the Roman military, using sources ranging from classical texts to tombstone inscriptions, this unprecedented regimental history paints an uncommonly vivid portrait of daily life in a Roman legion as it follows Caesar and his men along the blood-soaked fringes of the Empire. It was here that ambitious Romans built reputations through conquest, raw recruits became hardened foot soldiers, and the Tenth Legion became a killing machine?marching, digging, charging, ramming down gates, scaling battlements, storming through towns and villages, and slaughtering anyone who stood in their way.

Throughout this harrowing tale, Dando-Collins reveals previously unknown details about Roman military practices, Caesar?s conduct as a commander and his relationships with officers and legionaries, and the daily routine and discipline of a Roman legion?from the legion buddy system to the banks legions operated for their soldiers, from Rome?s version of the U.S. Pentagon to new information about the legion recruiting system. We learn what a legionary had for breakfast, find out about his training, weapons, clothes, and pastimes, and discover the brutal discipline conscripts endured.

From penetrating insights into the mind of history?s greatest general to a grunt?s-eye view of the gruesome realities of war in the Classical Age, this unique and riveting account sets a new standard of excellence and detail to which all authors of history will now aspire.
