There is something alluring about ancient methods of warfare that have been made obsolete by this modern era of computers and machines. Before the days of tanks and machine guns, there were scaling ladders, battering rams, siege towers, throwing machines, bores, and agger. Weapons such as these symbolise power, protection, control, and defiance. Ancient and medieval siege weapons allows readers to actually re-create their own medieval weapons with clear, step-by-step instructions. Military history buffs can find siege weapons of Ancient Egypt, Judea, Assyria, Persia, Greece, and Rome, as well as those of the Gauls and Teutons, the Byzantine Empire, the Muslim world, and medieval Europe, all described with incredible detail and accompanied by illustrations and photographs.
