Something that irritates me in the current crop of HF who write about the Roman army, is that they are equated with the modern Army. It feels like I'm watching a re-run of MASH. I'm pretty sure Roman soldiers didn't think the same way as modern soldiers do. And this 'Our Boys' guff, it's left me not wanting to read any more of a certain authors books.
I haven't quite decided yet whether it is down to the target audience [in reality] being teenage boys, or the author is being paid to recruit to the British Army.
