English term or phrase:well-drilled
Roman legions had a well-tried process for pitched battles. The well-drilled infantry marched to the attack in line abreast with their long shields held before them. The front rank would rattle the enemy with a shower of spears and then, if the enemy held their ground, march doggedly forward, stabbing with their swords and literally trampling them into the ground.
