Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is the typical Osprey Warrior book, the text detailing origins, military identity and culture, appearance, gear, tactics, duties, and daily life of the subject. This title examines the elite horsemen, often of 'barbarian' Gaulish, Germanic, and Thracian origin, who aided the Roman legionaries in their wars of the 1st and 2nd Centuries AD.

By JPS TOP 500 REVIEWER on November 18, 2012
Format: Paperback
This booklet is a solid introduction to the Roman Auxiliary Cavalryman, the one you see appearing in a number of historical novels, such as the ones from Manda Scott on the conquest of Britain for instance, or the ones that take place somewhere up North beyond or close to Hadrian's Wall.

First published in 2006, it follows a pattern that has now become a bit of a standard. It deals with recruitment, organization, equipment and appearance, training and exercises, conditions of service (pay, rewards and diet) and military day-to-day life before examining the role of the auxiliary cavalryman on campaign. It also presents some tentative numbers on Roman cavalry and their growing importance across the two-century period covered.

A nice touch has been to introduce an "After service" section that deals with the discharge of the veteran cavalrymen - the few that survived their 25 years of service - his death and burial. Also included in this section is a presentation of some of the quite numerous cavalry tombstones which have been discovered.

The contents are a good summary and therefore a goof introduction. The emphasis and the pieces on the equipment, the horse's diet and the training of both horse and rider come from Ann Hyland's books on "The Horse in the Roman world" and "Training the Roman Cavalry" based on Arrian's Tactical Treaty. The main points are both well-presented and well summarized

Just like the rest of the book, the plates are also good, even if neither of them is spectacular nor terribly original. You get the almost usual mix of plates on equipment, recruitment, horses, training, parade, battle, aftermath of the battle. Four stars.
