Ancient Siege Warfare by Duncan B. Campbell

Book Description

Most generals and leaders, such as Hannibal and Alexander the Great, are renown for their victories in pitched battles, but siege tactics were a necessary and important part of conquering fortified enclaves. Whetehr you chose to break through the defences, go over them, tunnel under them, or trick your way in in Trojan horse-style, the art of laying siege became widely used throughout the ancient world. This well-illustrated study of ancient siege warfare looks at the techniques, tactics and equipment employed, alongside descriptions of actual events.
