Hoplites: The Classical Greek Battle Experience
Victor Davis Hanson
Routledge, 1993 - Foreign Language Study - 286 pages
There are many books on ancient Greek warfare which focus on tactical or strategic problems. This text, however, concentrates on the experiences of the soldiers who did the fighting, not on their generals, nor on logistics, tactics, or strategy, which were, after all, deliberately secondary considerations.
