Item description for The Logistics of the Roman Army at War, (264 B.C., A.D. 235) (Columbia Studies in the Classical Tradition) by Jonathan P. Roth...

Relying on a variety of literary, documentary and archaeological sources, this work explores the Roman military supply system from the Punic Wars to the end of the Principate. Each chapter is devoted to a different aspect of logistics: supply needs and rations; packs, trains and military servants; foraging and requisition; supply lines; sources of supply; administration; and the impact of logistics on Roman warfare. As a whole, the book traces the development of the Roman logistics into a highly sophisticated supply system. In addition, it makes a critical study of important technical questions of Roman logistics, such as the size of the soldiers' grain ration, the function of military servants, and the changes in logistical management under the Republic and Empire.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Logistics of the Roman Army at War, (264 B.C., A.D. 235) (Columbia Studies in the Classical Tradition)?

Good Resource Marred By Horrible Editing  Apr 21, 2004
With a book this expensive you would think they could have found a decent editor, but such is not the case. This book is filled with hundreds of grammar and spelling errors (at times several on a single page) that would have been caught by even the most casual editorial review or even a read-through by an English 101 student. The editor of this volume (William V. Harris) should be ashamed to have his name attached to it.

If bad editing does not bother you, then I can recommend this book with five stars. It retreads a lot of ground in the field, but the author deftly combines a number of sources into a unified whole. Although by no means worth the $135 if you are simply a casual reader, the first two chapters alone (1. Supply Needs and Rations, 2. Packs, Trains and Servants) make the book *well* worth it for military historians hungry for hard numbers and thoughtful extrapolation.
