Roman soldiers were indeed  the most greatest soldiers of the Ancient World despite for known of great losses. Those men build the Roman Empire and held it together.

Nice to see the lighter side of what could be a very dark profession.  Roman soldiers were known for their cruelty.

Actually, they were not known to be any more cruel than other cultures of the time. In fact, they were far more civilized than some of their opponents like the Britons. Good Roman generals were harsh, but fair like Gaius Marius.
