Overview

Aineias the Tactician: How to Survive under Siege by David Whitehead

Aineias the Tactician (fourth century B.C.), the author of How to Survive Under Siege, is not only the earliest, but also the most historically interesting of the ancient military writers. Providing a fresh translation of Siege, Whitehead illuminates Aineias's vivid descriptions of what a typical Greek city-state was like at a time when most cities were dominated by two powerful and atypical ones—Athens and Sparta. He shows that in writing this important work Aineias drew not only on his own experiences, but on the works of Herodotus and Thucydides. The book also includes a comprehensive introduction to the author and his work, and a full historical commentary.
