He introduces the reader to the “personal” life of Roman soldiers.

"Dr. Whately’s book is life-writing meets history, a very exciting and engaging way to introduce the material and is a significant publication in the field of ancient military studies," says Dr. Peter Miller, Chair of the Classics department.
