WARRIORS OF THE WORLD: THE ANCIENT WARRIOR 3000 BC-450 AD

Details

Spanning some 3500 years of history and moving from the Bronze to the Iron Age Warriors of the World: The Ancient Warrior 3000 BC-450 AD describes the armies that fought on the battlefields of the Classical World. The book shows how the composition of those armies changed as different cultures rose and fell from prominence - such as the peasant levies of the Egyptian Pharaohs or the well-drilled citizen soldiers of the Roman Republic for example - and as tactics and technology advanced allowing better armour and weapons to be used to greater effect in battle. From the first organised armies of the Ancient Near East to the so-called 'barbarian' hordes of Goths Huns and other non-Romans who caused the fall of the Western Roman Empire Warriors of the World: The Ancient Warrior 3000 BC-450 AD explores the development of ancient soldiers and how they fought through the ages. With detailed colour illustrations and fact-filled accompanying text the book is the essential guide for any enthusiast for the period.About the AuthorMartin J.
