Read an excerpt of this book. Roman military personal equipment was produced in small numbers to established patterns, and it was used in an established manner. These standard patterns and uses were called the res militaris or regular practice during the Roman Republic and Roman Empire led to military excellence and victory.

    At its largest, the Roman army was made up of 30 legions, or over , soldiers. Counting the auxiliary soldiers, some estimate there were well over 1 million soldiers in the Roman army.
