Opis w j. angielskim:

Despite the great interest in the Roman Army, particularly in the many re-enactment societies, up until now it has been surprisingly difficult to find out information about the uniforms they wore and the textiles that were used in those uniforms. Graham Sumner’s book redresses this balance, presenting in an informative and accessible way the evidence for the types of clothing utilized by the Roman soldier. With full scale color illustrations drawn by the author, who is an experienced historical illustrator, along with patterns and diagrams of clothing finds and information on the latest archaeological studies, this book provides a comprehensive insight into the development of the Roman soldier’s uniform from the Late Republic to the advent of the Byzantine Empire.

Even on a visual level this book is a gem - in addition to numerous photographs and line drawings the author presents us with sixteen paintings he has done of Roman soldiers, ranging from the days of the Samnite wars all the way down to the era of Justinian, and these are a beauty to look at besides adding clarity to the actual appearance of Rome’s fighting men through the centuries.

This title does much to destroy the overdone stereotype of all Roman legionaries being clad in loricas and red tunics and cloaks - it reveals the diversity of style, fabric, and color that existed in the Roman Army, and the influence other cultures had on Roman dress. I imagine this title would be especially valuable for an artist, reenactor or wargamer needing to get their depictions of Roman clothing as accuracy as possible.
