The Military Institutions of the Romans

The most influential military treatise in the western world from Roman times to the 19th Century was Vegetius’ De Re Militari. Its influence on our own traditions of discipline and organization are evident everywhere.┬áThe first book treats of the choice and exercises of new troops; the second explains the establishment of the legion and the method of discipline; and the third contains the dispositions for action. This edition is the 1767 translation by Lieutenant John Clarke.
