Caracalla: A Military Biography

Salvete omnes!

a little bit of the ancients today
I can say I correspond from time to time with dr Ilkka Syvänne, scholar of the ancient and medieval military history, so I am happy to announce his new book on the military life of one of the most maligned Roman rulers Imperator Marcus Aurelius Severus Antoninus Augustus.

 The work has been given a release date on Amazon - October 14, 2017
Caracalla: A Military Biography, 361 pages, maps, plate &  published by Pen & Sword, ISBN : 9781473895249.

Some of the reconstruction plates from the book, historically accurate, with dr Ilkka Sylvänne consent


I hope to read it soon.
Meantime you can read a libre online-version of  dr Syvänne's article on the Parthian Caraphract vs Roman Army, in the University of Siedlce periodical publication Historia i Swiat.

"Maligned" with very good reasons. One of the worst of the Roman Emperors.
