Very simple overview of the fighting styles of the ancient world. Lavishly illustrated the battle scene paintings are great. Neat in the fact that it includes very early periods with references to Assyrian/Egyptian/Hittite period sources for battles like Qadesh and others. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312309325, Hardcover)

A comprehensive and heavily illustrated guide to warfare in the ancient world.

This essential guide to ancient warfare describes the fighting methods of soldiers in Europe and the Middle East in an age before gunpowder. From a detailed examination of the individual components of an ancient army and their equipment, to a fascinating exploration of ancient battle strategies, siege warfare, and naval battles, it explores the unique tactics required to win battles with the technology available. Using specially commissioned color and black-and-white artwork and 24 full-color tactical maps, this book shows in great detail the methods by which armies, including Assyrians and Roman forces, prevailed over their foes, and why other armies were less successful. This is a must-read for any reader interested in ancient warfare.
