Introduced with a foreword by best-selling historian and author Adrian Goldsworthy, Sumner’s beautiful colour reconstructions of Ancient Roman warriors over time are complemented expertly with informative, enlightening text by eminent historian and author Simon Elliott.

This combination of Sumner’s illustrations and Elliott’s writing leaves no stone unturned as they divulge information about this fascinating period of military history in mesmerising, intricate detail. Readers will swiftly become fully immersed in this ancient world, and will leave it with a wealth of knowledge about and a profound understanding of the warriors of Ancient Rome, and a great appreciation for Sumner and Elliott’s expertise in the area.

A beautifully illustrated book, containing over 130 paintings by the well-known illustrator Graham Sumner with text by the historian and author Simon Elliott across 200 pages.

Very useful for researchers and writers of the period. But also a fantastic addition to the bookshelf for the casual reader.
