Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Campbell and Tritle have assembled engaging and valuable essays from an impressive list of contributors in the fields of classics, ancient history, and archaeology.... Though encyclopedic in scope, including entries on arms and armor, strategy, generalship, care of wounded, naval warfare, and logistics, the essays also constitute a vibrant retelling of the experience of ancient warfare. Well-supplied with maps and timelines, this volume should be included in any classics or military history collection. Highly Recommended."—J. D. Lyons, CHOICE
