Military Mortality in the Middle and Late Roman Republic

This project asks a simple question: how many Roman and Italian soldiers died in Rome’s wars during the third, second and first centuries BCE? The answer is vital to a central problem in Roman history—nothing less than our understanding of the fundamental demographic and social causes of the fall of the Republic. I will argue that military mortality in this era was far greater than anyone has previously recognized and that its effects profoundly shaped political and military events in the middle and late Republic.
