The army, by the middle of the fifth century mostl y German , tended to fa vour an effecti ve civil administration, as it relied on the capacity of the government 10 coHeel (axes for its livelihood. I t had no permanent geographical base, but its centres lay in the northern cities (the North being most liable to invasion) and its relationship with Ravenna was close.
