3. In 420 there were no "Legions" in the classical sense, that's why I said units...

1.No, the operation happened in May 1940, France.
3.Actually no. The number of recorded units was 181 btw...The number of troops, very different...
My information comes from Heather, "A new history of Rome and the barbarians" and mentions a much lower number for 420, according to the Imperial catalogues.
Anyway, I consider this question probably "over the top" for here, so it's a tie between Cato and cpt Blackadder since you both had 3 out of 5 right.
Heather's number is 181 "units' with a total of 90.000 troops...
I think the Captain is more deserving than I am; afterall, he did answer the questions (2/3) first. By all means, let Blackadder ask the questions and receive the rep.Originally Posted by Garbarsardar
Oh, and great questions Garb... they were hard as Hell!
