Dando-Collins, \'Legions of Rome\'
#1
Saw a book by Stephen Dando-Collins, Legions of Rome. It claims to be "the definitive history of every Imperial Roman legion". Potentially interesting - however, I understand from the thread on his book on the Great Fire that the forum members here take a dim view of his reliability! Just rapidly flicking through in the bookshop, something which immediately struck me as 'off' was assigning a shield emblem to every legion; my understanding was that - with one or two arguable exceptions - what these emblems were (or even if each legion did have its own design) is unknown.

Anyone know the book? If so, are my suspicions correct?
