How was the Roman army organized?

Answer

The Roman Army was organized into Legions, a legion was headed by a legate. Each legion had 5000 men and was further divided into cohorts with each cohort comprising six centuries; a century (originally 100 men, later 80 men) was headed by a centurion. Centurions were very important as they trained the soldiers under their command and ensured that everyone obeyed orders.
