Description

Fighting Techniques of the Ancient World describes the fighting techniques of soldiers in Europe and the Middle East in an age before gunpowder. The book explores the unique tactics required to win battles with the technology available, and points out how little has changed in some respects in the art of war. Using specially commissioned color and black-and-white artworks to illustrate the battles, equipment and tactics of the era, Fighting Techniques of the Ancient World shows in detail the methods by which armies, including Assyrians and Roman forces, prevailed over their foes, and why other armies were far less successful. The book is an essential companion for any reader in warfare in the classical age.
