Its an interesting and surprisingly dense book on fighting in the ancient world. The text is primarily tactical and its discussion of equipment, and combat skills supplement the discussion of tactic which of course makes a lot of sense because what you have often determines what you can do. Informative but can be a bit of a laborious read mostly because you hear about the Romans and Greek and fertile crescent civilizations all the time. Its a great entry point for those interested in military history. ( )

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. ( )

Foot soldiers were the essential component of most ancient armies: the best known were the Hellenic phalanx and Roman legion, but others were just as important.
