Kurzbeschreibung

19. Mai 2009 Fortress (Buch 83)
With the vast expansion of the Roman Empire came a need for more and more fortifications to defend it. The borders of the Empire stretched through wildly different terrains which demanded a huge variety of different fortifications, depending on the local conditions and the threats faced by the different areas. The adoption of local troops (auxiliaries) and local building techniques at key strategic points on the outskirts of the empire led to an intriguing mix of strong Roman structure with unique culturally diverse elements. Describing the development of these hugely varied defensive systems, Duncan Campbell delves into the operation and social history behind the fortifications. With detailed color artwork and maps, he traces their history through the Batavian Revolt of the 1st century AD, which saw auxiliary units scattered far from their native regions, until the decline of the late-3rd and 4th centuries placed their fortifications in an increasingly pressurized and eventually untenable position.

Pressestimmen

"All of this is superbly illustrated by photographs of the sites as they appear today as well as the excellent illustrations of Brian Delf, whose work allows us a look at these places as photos of the ruins cannot easily portray. In all, a fine addition to the Fortress series and a book that I believe you will find interesting." - Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness (September 2009)

Synopsis

Describing the development of these hugely varied defensive systems, Duncan Campbell delves into the operation and social history behind the fortifications.With detailed colour artwork and maps, he traces their history through the Batavian Revolt of the 1st century AD, which saw auxiliary units scattered far from their native regions, until the decline of the late 3rd and 4th centuries placed their fortifications in an increasingly pressurized and eventually untenable position.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good introduction to Roman auxiliary forts 2. Juni 2013
Von JPS - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This volume shares many of the features of the one on Roman legionary fortresses. Both have the same author. They also have the same structure which is hardly surprising since this is imposed throughout the "Fortress" series. It is also has a rather good section on the chronology of the forts, although, given the size limitations of the collection, some may find it is either too much or too little.

The author then presents a brief overview of the types of auxiliary units under the Empire. There were infantry, cavalry or mixed units and normal sized or double sized cohorts. Added to this, the locations where the forts were built would also ensure diversity so that, as the author clearly asserts, no two auxiliary forts were the same.

Another good point raised in this book is to question the assertion that forts somehow have standard sizes which were related to the size of the units that they contained. As shown by the author through examples, there was no fixed and absolute rule. However, one would, of course, expect that a larger double-sized unit would have a larger fort than that of a ordinary cohort, if only because everyone would not fit in otherwise.

The sections on the elements of such forts and living in a Roman fort deal with the various buildings, barracks, headquarters, granaries and supply buildings which could hold reserves for up to one year and so on. Both sections are very similar to those that can be found in the other Osprey title on Legionary fortresses, although this is hardly surprising. The issues were the same and they were addressed in a similar way. The bathing complex, however, was set outside of the fort, partly because of size constraints but also partly to avoid the fire hazard that it implied.

This is a good, solid introduction worth a solid four stars, although we know less about the Roman auxiliary forts than about the legionary fortresses.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Roman Aux forts 8. April 2013
Von m ziemann - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I wonder how many people interested in Roman history knew the Auxiliary troops built there own forts. I for one was not fully aware of this. Same on me. I do now know what went on in the constuction of this forts. I wish miniature makers of historical building would offer somethin like this for purchase. If so. I will be in line to purchase one.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Roman Auxiliary Forts 27 BC to AD 378 18. Februar 2011
Von malcolm petch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
For an amatuer like myself, Duncan Camerons books (and I have several of them)provide an excellent introduction to Roman military history. A bit on the expensive side, I would urge Amazon to reduce the average price of around fifteen pounds inclusive of postage by say 20 per cent. However Duncan Cameron is a great scholar.
