Warfare in the Ancient World

WARFARE IN THE ANCIENT WORLD explores how civilizations and cultures made war on the battlefields of the Near East and Europe between the rise of civilization in Mesopotamia in the late fourth millennium BC and the fall of Rome. Through an exploration of twenty-one selected battles, military historian Brian Todd Carey surveys the changing tactical relationships between the four weapon systems – heavy and light infantry and heavy and light cavalry – focusing on how shock and missile combat evolved from tentative beginnings in the Bronze Age to the highly developed military organization created by the Romans. Dozens of multiphase tactical maps are included in this fascinating introduction to the art of war in antiquity. The result is a synthetic work that will be essential reading for students and armchair military historians alike.
