Format: Paperback
The book's title is slightly misleading; although the central color plates illustrate representative images from the full range of dates indicated by the reigns cited therein, the text leans the discussion heavily toward the earlier part of the period and Hadrian's Wall in particular. Also, a disclaimer is included stating that much background material (including, presumably, definitions of some military terms used) is to be found in the companion volume, "The Roman Army from Caesar to Trajan."
Relating to the comparatively extensive discussion of helmets, the illustrations are scattered widely and inconveniently throughout the book (sometimes pages after the discussion of their object without any indication an illustration is included, frustrating especially after reading a detailed description) and references are again made to the companion volume. This and other subsections on equipment collectively dwarf other topics such as religion and diet of soldiers.
The author includes some unhelpfully amateurish drawings of his own besides much better photographs of his equipment reconstructions and the illustrator's plates.
The end of this period is treated more fully in Osprey's "Late Roman Infantryman" and "Late Roman Cavalryman," the balance handled in "Imperial Roman Legionary," which I have not seen.

This member of the Men at Arms series was as informative as its chronological predecessor which I have had for a few years. Especially interesting, as with the previous period and book, is that the author makes arms and armour reproductions and thus can make compelling estimations as to how pieces not yet found or not found intact might have been used or made based on practical knowledge of what is easy or difficult to make and thus why an infantry soldier of a low rank may have had different equipment from an officer (common practice). Also able to point out why, for example, things shown on Trajan's column may not portray things exactly as when completed. A good read.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of Osprey's oldest Men-at-Arms books, and is in dire need of replacement. The book never addresses its topic--the soldiers of the late imperial legions. The first half of the book covers Hadrian's Wall. The rest of the book discusses the archeological remains of armor, helmets, and swords. This book contains no discussion of the actual soldiers, battle formations, campaigns, tactics, historical antecdotes, or anything along the lines of what has become standard for the Men-at-Arms series. "The Rebuplican Roman Army, 200-104 BC" is hands down one of the best Men-at-Arms titles I've ever read, this book however is one of the worst, and I think a new one should be commissioned more along the lines of the former. For a better discussion of the soldiers of this period (and much better full-color plates), I recommend "Greece and Rome at War" by Peter Connonlly.

If you're looking for a book about information about the roman army from Hadrian to Constantine (as the title suggests) then you're looking at the wrong book. The majority of information in this book is on Hadrian's Wall (also most of the information is about roman army in Britain) and helmets. He is a British Roman army re-enactor and his work shows this in his very long boring descriptions of helmets & armour which could have been massively narrowed down. This just seems like a continuation of his other quite disappoiting osprey work The Roman Army from Caesar the Trajan. Osprey needs to update some of there works.
