Imagine that you are living in the mighty Roman Empire at the height of its power. Roman soldiers are stationed all around the empire to see that it is well-defended and properly run. That's what you want to do--become a Roman soldier! Do you have what it takes? You must be able to read and write, and have good hearing and eyesight. The army will provide some soldiers with weapons and armor. Others must pay for their own. Cavalrymen must provide and equip their own horses. Army life depends on discipline, whether in battle or in camp. How will you know what to do, and who to listen to? Roman soldiers are well-trained and spend time learning to march and use their weapons. Soldiers must act as part of a team. They live together, either in tents in marching camps, or in barracks in forts if they are far from Rome. You will be paid well and will have the opportunity to advance in rank if you are skilled and loyal. You might have what it takes to become an officer! How far will you travel? Will you be permitted to marry? What will you do for recreation? Perhaps you'll watch chariot races at the amphitheater or gladiators fighting there. Recreation helps to keep your mind off the dangers of your job. What kind of medical care will you get if you are injured in battle? What happens if you die in active service? Will you survive 25 years in the army and reach retirement? What happens then? All of your questions will be answered to prepare you for the job interview section at the end of the book. A clever way to test if you are ready to become a Roman soldier!
