Strategies and tactics
in the roman army
By: Bruna Introduction Some strategies Some strategies pictures How strategies and tactics in the
roman army helped roman expand for
a settlement to an empire? The romans were very puzzling with there strategies and tactics. They win most battles and they took over most of Europe by over taking some countries to join there empire. I have chosen to investigate about the two following questions: What are some strategies and tactics in the ancient roman army. i chose this topic because there is a lot of information about it and it is very interesting. They had curved shields and there spears where longer were longer then their shields so that they could protect themselves while hurting their opponent. They would be in groups of three one behind the other and if one got tired the first one in those group would go at the back of the line so the next person can fight. The shield in curved so that they can protect there whole body and they can move it from your feet to your face. They move in groups the ones in front put their shields in front of their body, the ones on the side put their shield on the side and the ones in the middle put it over their heads. This question helped Rome expand from a settlement to an empire because they occupied many country because of their tactics. Strategies and tactics in the roman army helped roman expand from a settle to an empire because their strategies where sneaky and creative when they invented there strategies so they could win most battle and take over most European countries. One of the sneakiness strategies is called "the turtle formation" which is when solders assemble themselves to form a turtle with their shields. It helped because they were more powerful considering the amount
of people in the army and they had experience
and training for battles. It helped because the people that they
over took after winning battles, their country taught that their
strategies were sly and very hard to beat so they joined the army. How strategies and tactics in the roman army helped
roman expand for a settlement to an empire? part 2 Tactics: the science of a plan for a battle
