Product description

From the Inside Flap

Focused on both land and sea battle narratives of the classical world, this three-volume reference covers archaic Greece in the eighth century BC to the rise of Islam in the seventh century AD. Recent scholarship in the field of military history has tended to focus either on the mechanics of battle or on the impact of warfare on society. In The Encyclopedia of Ancient Battles, a distinguished, international group of military history scholars returns to the topic of battle narrative with specific accounts of more than 400 battles and sieges. These battles are arranged chronologically and grouped into nearly 100 articles on campaigns and wars. Each article presents what is known of the ancient battle or siege, as well as what is uncertain or disputed, and places the battle within the framework of the broader campaign or war in which it occurred. Taken together, the articles provide the most complete and up to date scholarship on the battles of the classical world.
