Reprint of 1956 revised edition (1928 original). Although outdated by more recent works (Webster / Bohec), this is still an interesting book and was the first on the subject in English. The book is very readable for the most part, but there are also some really tedious parts about minutiae of when legions were formed (the author is refuting ideas from other authors). Also, the book contains numerous Latin and Greek quotes that are not translated which will be frustrating to those who don't know Greek (like me), or Latin. ( )
