About this Product

This book combines Men-at-Arms 129: ‘Rome's Enemies 1: Germanics and Dacians', Men-at-Arms 158: ‘Rome's Enemies 2: Gallic & British Celts' and Men-at-Arms 180: ‘Rome's Enemies 4: Spanish Armies 218-19BC'. As Rome's borders increased, a multifarious clash of cultures ensued. Conflict was inevitable; to the victor, new territory and dominion; to the vanquished, humility and subjugation. The Celts, Celtiberians, Gauls, Teutones, Cimbri, and many others all fought without mercy to protect their people, territories and cultures from the Roman onslaught.
