Which Roman army are we to write about? Pre Marius or after Marius reforms. The Army at the height of the republic. The army of the first 200 years 0f the empire. The later army of the empire, or the army of The Theodosian dynasty during the time of the Barbarian migrations. After Aetius stalled Attila at Chalons around 454AD, the army changed radically once more. Oh hell, they were all magnificent. As to what made them the envy of the world as they saw it, what made them great, that is too much to put in one small quip of this size.
