First, in actual battles, individual units were committed and withdrawn according to the progress of the battle in a relatively fluid manner.
There is no attempt to explain the significance of the earlier date in the book's title, 100 B.C., since there is only the most cursory references to campaigns up to the Social War (91-90 B.C.).
That said, the book does what is sets out to do, that is, it emphasizes the inherent flexibility of the Roman legion, and it describes Roman battles in terms of what actually happens on the ground rather than in terms of questionable theories of grand strategy and tactics.
