Description

Herod the Great was one of Rome's most important client kings during the turbulent years of the late Republic and early Principate. Sponsored and aided by Mark Antony, Herod of Judaea had the military skill to conquer his country, and the political subtlety to hold his throne during and after the Roman civil wars. His small but wealthy kingdom supported a strong multi-national army formed from a mix of Jewish, Greek and Roman influences, which won repeated victories against Arab powers on Judaea's eastern borders.

Drawing upon ancient texts, this book details the composition and organization of Herod's army, and its four major campaigns.
