Vox Populi Forum
Asking the important questions:
The article says Marines would of course win early battles but would eventually run out of supplies.
That leads me to a few thoughts:
(1) Cut off the head of the Beast - Roman Army don't fight without an Emperor.
(2) Would a good Quartermaster such as Sam Grant do a better job against the Roman Legions? With say the Army of the Potomac at his back? Let's make it interesting .... circa 1864.
The Marines are masters at improvisation ... I say it would not be close. Marines win in a sweep. (Secondarily, they would not be shaken by Roman tactics.)
