Twilight of the Empire: The Roman Infantryman 3rd to 6th Century AD Summary


The pedes, who remained the backbone of the Roman army until well into the 5th century, was different from the legionary who preceded him. Perhaps he was not as well disciplined, but in many ways he was more flexible -- ready for deployment to trouble spots, and for fighting both as a skirmisher and a heavy infantryman. Simon MacDowall explores the changing nature of the Roman infantryman between the 3rd and 6th centuries AD, covering such topics as recruitment, training and armor, and providing an excellent evaluation of Roman infantry tactics.
