Yodotai Legionnaire

Yodotai Legionnaire wielding a gladius

Gladius were short swords, two feet in length, double-edged, used by nearly every soldier who served in the Yodotai army. It was originally used in the First Great Crusade. The Yodotai Legionnaire used to block his enemy's line of sight with his shield. He then reached under his raised shield and disemboweled the enemy with a vicious thrust at the abdomen. [1] It was primarily a thrusting weapon, intended to be used at close quarters and capable of penetrating many forms of armor without great difficulty. [2]
