The year is AD 98. You are a soldier named Marcus who just joined the Roman Army at the age of 18. You take an oath and receive your training in Rome. There you learn to fight. You train by running, wrestling, riding horses, and swimming. You have victorious moments, but there are hard times as well. This commitment to your country involves a lot of travel and some downright disgusting living conditions. You just might decide that You Wouldn't Want to be a Roman Soldier.
