Denis Saddington passed away on May 24th. Probably best known for his The Development of the Roman Auxiliary Forces from Caesar to Vespasian, he contributed many papers and articles on the Roman army.
Greets!

Sad news indeed. I felt fortunate enough that I was able to correspond with him on a couple of occasions.

Ares publishing is about to republish his revised works on Roman Auxiliary Forces.

Good grief -- just heard the sad news tonight. (I hadn't noticed this post on RAT.) I hadn't corresponded with Denis for a while, but his insight into the Roman auxilia will be sadly missed.
