This unique volume explores Roman amphibious warfare from the assault against Carthage in 204 BC to the invasion of Britain in 43 AD. It examines the nature, capabilities, limitations, and characteristics of Roman amphibious operations within a framework conceived by the US Joint Chiefs of Staff. Standard works about Roman sea power lack discussion of this important topic. It will interest scholars of ancient and military history, marine warfare, as well as those in military academies.
