If you need to know about the century or how to command it, this is a must. It is okay to stand around and look pretty, but this group of work will give you a background to help fill out your knowledge and your impression. A MUST HAVE. Review by Tiberius Marius Corax (Posted on 3/25/2014)

It is an extraordinary and superb work on Roman Centuria and centurions through the existence of the Empire. All the authors have condensed history without missing any crucial subject. Moreover they have given in an understandable manner the life, career, training, tactics and equipment of the Roman legionaries. Finally I found the issue very interesting. I would recommend it with ''flying colours!'' Review by Spider (Posted on 3/15/2014)

This is an excellent booklet. It describes and explains the role and place of the Centurion in the Roman army in a very informed and knowledgeable manner as well as being written in an easy flowing and engaging style. The numerous illustrations are truly superb. I highly recommend this work. Review by Gregory (Posted on 10/4/2013)
