To the two Charles:
A book you might be interested in is "Mark Antony's Heroes, How the Third Gallica Legion Save an Apostle and Created an Emperor" by Stephen Dando-Collins. The Third Gallica was stationed in Judea during the time of the "Jewish" revolt. It was also instrumental in bringing Vespasian to power in Roma.
The book also details the economic aspect of war in the ancient world. The legions were actually quite entreprenerial! Have a great day!
