I am reading Stephen Dando-Collins Legions of Rome. I find Roman history very interesting. I especially like Suetonius, The Lives of the Twelve Caesars. There is a harsh discipline to Roman life. I am learning a few new things about the legion. For example, foreign auxiliary troops would serve to gain citizenship which was presented to them as a small bronze plaque.
