0 Reviews
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.
