Summary:
They were the tough guys lurking just beyond the borders of the Roman Empire. They were the godless savages who could not be convinced to come into the fold and accept the obvious superiority (to the Romans) of Roman civilization. They were THE BARBARIANS. Much of what we know of these many tribes and nations is distorted by the filter of Roman writers and historians. FOOT SOLDIER sorts through the evidence in search of a true portrait of the warriors that fought against Rome. From the awesome spectacle of the Celts in battle, their ferocity compounded by the startling sight of their naked bodies decorated with warpaint, to the Visigoths sacking Rome in 410, this is a revealing look at the soldiers who gave the Roman legions an excuse to pick up their pay. Blending insightful scholarship with a whimsical touch that entertains while it informs, THE BARBARIANS explores the strategies, training and day to day life of the men who fought against Rome.
