I liked it. A good primer for starting a study of the Roman Army. It touched on a very large swath of information on the institution and showed its evolution over the years. I did not like that it got repetitive at times and that the writing style did not have a very even flow. However, this will prove to be a useful reference work in the future for obtaining information about the Romans.

Although this is a better-than-average review of the Roman army, once again, an author who is a supposed expert on ancient Rome perpetuates the (long disproven) contention that Caesar burned the Alexandrian Library. This kind of error lessens the overall worth of the book.
