Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 085323910X, Paperback)
The only Latin art of war to survive, Vegetius’ Epitome was for long a part of the medieval prince’s military education. The core of his proposals, the maintenance of a professional standing army, was revolutionary for medieval Europe, while his theory of deterrence through strength remains the foundation of modern Western defense policy.
"by far the best English translation of Vegetius available ..."—Bryn Mawr Classical Review
