"Meticulously researched and well written, it addresses every aspect of the army as a fighting force. The Roman Army at War falls into that most welcome category of books with proper footnotes ... The whole package is wrapped up with a refreshingly comprehensive bibliography ... the work he has compiled will keep this reviewer quite satisfied for the foreseeable future." - Duncan B. Campbell, Britannia
"He has written a book about the realities of warfare in the early Empire and we should be truly grateful." - Hugh Elton, Trinity College, Hartford, CT, Journal of Roman Studies
"The book does what it sets out to do, namely, it emphasizes the inherent flexibility of the Roman legion." - Bryn Mawr Classical Review
"useful study ... the attempt to refocus the discussion of the Roman army along the lines of actual (and not idealized) warfare is welcome and largely successful." - Loren J. Samons II, Religious Studies Review
