The Roman Legions were the most highly disciplined and best-armed soldiers of their day, feared throughout the known world. This program, produced by the History Channel, examines their organization, their weaponry, their accomplishments, and their political influence. The story of their power starts with Caesar, continues with Caligula, and ends with their ultimate deterioration and demise. Historians discuss key moments in the history of the Roman military machine, while reenactments are used to illustrate the might of the Roman Legions.
