Despite the importance of warfare in the collapse of the Roman Empire, there is no modern, comprehensive study available. This book discusses the practice of warfare in Europe, from both Roman and barbarian perspectives, during the late fourth and early fifth centuries. It analyses the military practices and capabilities of the Romans and their northern enemies at policy, strategic, operational, and tactical levels, and covers civil wars, sieges, and naval warfare. Dr Elton analyses in depth the issue of barbarization, and shows that it did not affect the efficiency of the Roman army. Other sections of the book discuss organization, fortifications, and equipment.

MEDIA REVIEWS
It represents an impressive and formative contribution to the study of that period of profound change after the mid-fourth century ... an excellent survey of a vitally important subject, which will form the basis of future examination of individual problems. * Brian Dobson, Early Medieval Europe 1997 *
Very systematic and clearly organized and should appeal to a wide range of readers from the secondary to more advanced levels. * History: Reviews of New Books *
Essential reading for anyone studying these periods of Late Antiquity. E's book is also of relevance to those concerned with any aspect of the military history of the ancient world. * Journal of Roman Studies *
a work of real scholarship. For those familiar with the field, it provides a thorough insight into the working and nature of the Late Roman army and the enemies it faced on the northern frontier ... the overall argument is very well presented and cogent, and gives a vivid impression of the nature and operation of warfare in the late fourth century. * Boris Rankov, The Classical Review *
Authoritative view of the late army... and a ... balanced one. * Duncan Campbell. The Later Roman Army. *
