Herod the Great was one of Koine's most important client kings during
the turbulent years of the late Republic and early l'rincipate. Sponsored
and aided by Mark Antony, Herod of Judaea had the military skill to conquer
his country, and the political subtlety to hold his throne during and after
the Roman civil wars. His small but wealthy kingdom supported a strong
multi-national army formed from a mix of Jewish, Greek and Roman influences,
which won repeated victories against Arab powers on Judaea's eastern borders.
Drawing upon ancient texts, this book details the composition and organization
of Herod's army, and its four major campaigns.
