A three title volume on warfare in the ancient world No student of warfare in the ancient world should be without Eugene S. McCartney's brilliant work on the subject. This book appears in its entirety as the first piece in this special Leonaur edition which also includes campaign and battlefield maps absent from other editions. McCartney's research is exemplary; he not only gives examples of every aspect of Roman and Greek military tactics, formation, organisation, logistics, engineering and weapons but also provides numerous examples of how and when they were employed-successfully or otherwise-by describing relevant campaigns and engagements. What makes this Leonaur volume particularly important for military historians is that reference is frequently made to Creasy's classic work on the fifteen most decisive battles in history. Five of these conflicts took place in the ancient period and Creasy's learned essays on these battles have been included here for easy reference when reading the principal text. Also cited in the principal text is Ralph Payne-Gallwey's work on ancient artillery, such as the balista and catapult; that, complete with its excellent and detailed line drawings, concludes an essential volume that will enhance any library on warfare in the ancient world. Recommended.
