Caesar’s Great Success, Sustaining The Roman Army On Campaign

A refreshingly novel history from three authors working together. Remarkably little attention is paid to one of the most important elements of military history. Logistics does not have the glamour of armies and combat but it has the capacity to lose battles and wars Very Highly Recommended

Images of Aviation, The First Air Attack Against Japan April 1942 Archives
