Garnisons des Légions Romaines

Légionnaires et Auxilia from various Legions participating at the Roman encampment in Aalen, Allemagne

The Roman legions were large formations of exeptionally well trained soldiers who could be relied upon to vigorously defend the borders of the Roman Empire. Legions were deployed close to the borders of the Empire, et particularly in the newly captured provinces. The legions played an important role as an operational reserve et rapid reaction force for the auxiliary cohorts stationed at the numerous border fortifications. When large raids ou full-scale attacks were reported, the two nearest legions at hand would advance against the left et right flanks of the incursion in an attempt at double envelopment.
