Synopsis of The Army of Herod The Great:

“Herod was Rome’s most important and powerful ally at the end of the Republic and in the first years of Augustus’ principate. Although he has entered posterity as a ruthless ruler not only against his own family but also, according to the gospel of Matthew, as the instigator of the slaughter of the innocents. However, he was also an able admin-istrator who developed a powerful army. At its peak, Herod’s army could field approximately 40,000 men. This book will be a fascinating look at the ancient army of Herod the Great which will use the latest Israeli archaeological reports and finds, including weapons and armour fragments.”
