“Despite their inglorious end, the legions remain to this day, thousands of years after their creation, the most pre-eminent example of how detailed organization, tight discipline, and inspiring leadership can take a group of individuals and turn them into a winning team.”
Stephen Dando-Collins, Legions of Rome: The definitive history of every Roman legion

“Estilicón era el salvador de la ciudad y del imperio. «Aquí está la verdadera fuerza de Roma, su auténtico líder, Marte en forma humana»”
