Description - Ancient Siege Warfare by Duncan B. Campbell

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.
