Stephen Dando-Collins paints a vivid and definitive portrait of daily life in the Tenth Legion, following Caesar and his men along the blood-soaked fringes of the Empire. This unprecedented regimental history reveals countless previously unknown details about Roman military practices, Caesar’s conduct as a commander and his relationships with officers and legionnaires, and the daily routine and discipline of the Legion.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Written in readable, popular style, Caesar's Legion is a must for military buffs and anyone interested in Roman history at a critical point in European civilization.” T. R. Fehrenbach, author of Lone Star
“This is a short history of Julius Caesar's fabled Tenth Legion, one of the main instruments in his many conquests and something of a military legend that lasted long after Caesar’s death. Dando-Collins has a grand, gripping story to tell here: We get massive battles, hard-won victories, and a parade of memorable characters. This is certainly a vigorous and entertaining way to read Roman history.” Barnes & Noble, editorial review
