Description - Ancient Siege Warfare by Duncan B. Campbell

Sieges played a central role in the many conflicts of the Ancient World and many famous generals, including Alexander the Great, Hannibal, Julius Caesar and Trajan, successfully used siegecraft to gain their objectives. This title explores the range of techniques and tactics which developed during the period, including crossing, penetrating and tunnelling through defences; starvation by blockade; and gaining access by deception. Describing the various techniques used, the author tracks siegecraft developments from Ancient Persia in the sixth century BC through to the Roman sieges of the second century BC.
