This superbly illustrated volume traces the evolution of the art of warfare in the Greek and Roman worlds between 1600 B.C. and A.D. 800, from the rise of Mycenaean civilization to the fall of Ravenna and the collapse of the Western Roman Empire.

This is just an overview but it has colorful and interesting illustrations to augment the text and is an oversize text that is enjoyable to peruse.

This handy book takes us from the Greek and Persian Wars to the early Roman Empire. The book is organized chronologically, with some great sidebars on the evolution of troop types and tactics. There are also some wonderful color plates of soldiery. ( )
