This book is the story of Roman fortifications along Hadrian's Wall. Using the First Tungrian Cohort as a vehicle, the author traces their building of different types of fortifications and their life among them. The book includes many diagrams and exquisite cut-away images to show what the various buildings looked like both inside and out. Also, the well-written text explains construction techniques and a good deal about daily life in the Imperial Roman Army.

This is an excellent book on Roman fortifications and garrison troops, and I recommend it highly.

Vindolanda along Hadrian's Wall will make no sense until you look at it from the perspective of this book. Connolly has a unique skill in bringing fragmentary archaeological evidence into a historically accurate visual representation. This is probably the best book of the series.

All of Connolly's books are must-haves. I see the paperback versions of Roman Fort, The Legionary and The Cavalryman seem to be out of print. I have a feeling that these titles may reappear as a single volume sometime in the near future. Previous titles by this author, The Roman Army, The Greek Armies, and Hannibal and the Enemies of Rome first appeared as paperbacks in 1977-78. The content of these books came together in the single hardcover, Greece and Rome at War, in 1981. So, the same thing may be happening again.
