That key to Rome’s military success during the Pax Romana period (where the Roman Empire rose to its zenith) was the advanced military innovations that the Romans incorporated into its great army that encompassed military bureaucracy, battle tactics and military technology. The old saying, “Success comes to those who are prepared” was comparable to the Roman army. This was due to the fact that The Romans prepared themselves with a very well developed military bureaucracy that planned everything out such as daily routines, how they marched and most importantly military ranks. This meant the roman army was extremely organized and orders followed through very smoothly down the chain of command which was essential to their success. The surviving duty roster RMR 9 (RMR stands for Robert Fink’s Roman Military Records on Papyrus) from of Legio III stationed at Cyrenaica gave a very good perspective of how the Roman army organized daily duties let alone military campaigns.
According to later criticisms, however, Alexander the Great conquered Asia Minor because of many external factors and components that made a conquest of the region not only possible, but imminent. While many historians prefer to talk about Alexander’s military genius, many other factors outside of Alexander’s control are also responsible for his successful and undefeated conquest at such a young age. Alexander’s father, Philip, laid the groundwork of a military loyal to the throne. Many of the military developments used by Alexander were also actually developed by his father. The Macedonian phalanx, military drills, and its organization may have been utilized successfully in battle by Alexander, but were innovated by his father and predecessor.
