UK Kirkus Review » The ancient world looked to the Greeks for culture and civilisation, but feared those same Greeks for their fanatical love of war. What history has not told us to the same degree is how the Greeks prepared for war - what weapons they used, what means of defence, what innovations they introduced that were still to be influencing warfare 1000 and more years later. In this first major study of ancient Greek warfare for more than 35 years, historian Everson draws on a wealth of resources to show what sort of weapons and tactics the Greeks used to their advantage in the period from 1550BC to 150BC. Archaeology and art have their place in bringing us this information, as do the writings of such luminaries as Homer and Herodotus. Everson has compiled a highly readable book on ancient warfare that answers the age-old question: What was it really like to fight at the time of Alexander the Great? (Kirkus UK)
