The Roman Army The Roman Army was a fierce army and no one could defeat them They had many new tactics that other people have never even heard of They were ahead of their time and got some of their ideals from the Greeks The roman Army was divided into two groups The first was legions and the second was the auxilium The legions were the main group that fought and the auxiliaries helped out the legions The two groups fought the battles together In the army there were about 160000 legionaries and about 14000 auxiliaries The army just did not fight they also helped build roads digging ditches repairing boots and building other equipment When the army would camp at night they would build a fort even if they were just staying one night The soldiers would train all day long if they were not building equipment or fighting The Roman Soldiers would fight with two seven foot spears and a two foot sword When they would throw the spears and they would stick in the enemies shield the tip would bend or break off so the enemy could not use them They used the short sword for stabbing the enemy and not thrust and cut They did this because there was not enough room in hand to hand combat The soldiers would wear linen under vest if it was cold They wore a bronze helmet and a leather skull cap to protect their heads They wore upper body armor to protect them for stab wounds but nothing on their legs because it would slow them down They also had a rectangle shield to protect them from the enemies weapons The Roman Army was a well trained army that was very difficult to defeat They were willing to win and would not give up if they failed This is what made their enemies fearful of them
