Description de l'ouvrage

10 septembre 2005 Elite (Livre 130)
Osprey's study of Mycenaean warriors, from 1650 to 1100 BC. The timeless appeal of Homer's epic poem of the ancient Trojan War, The Iliad, has meant an eduring interest in the Mycenaean age. Modern scholarship and new archaeological evidence now allows us to recontruct with reasonable confidence the appearance of this great warrior civilization, which dominated much of the eastern Mediterranean between the 16th and 12th centuries BC. We can also make deductions, from the few surviving pictorial sources, about the tactics of these armies. This absorbing text is illustrated with examples of the archaeological and pictorial evidence, and with striking colour reconstructions of light and heavy infantry and chariot warriors of the Mycenaean age.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Better than the comments on illustrations would lead you to believe. 1 février 2006
Par Red Harvest - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
There is more to this book than the illustrations and I hope that most readers also have a substantial interest in the text. The text is very readable and sufficiently detailed (considering the Osprey format) to satisfy the interest of most wargamers and military history enthusiasts.

I nearly didn't buy this work due to the other reviews of the art. Fortunately, I gambled on this one. While I agree that the illustrations are somewhat *different* stylistically than Angus McBride's normal work, I've also noticed quite a bit of variation in his style in other works. If one wants a lot of color and sharp delineation and detail, then this will not be one of your favorites. On the other hand, if you are weary of boyish faces and stocky statures of the characters in some other McBride works then you might appreciate the change of pace in these plates. Regardless of the artistic impression, the plates serve well their functional purpose of illustrating the Mycenaean soldiers in action.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Imperfect but useful. 2 décembre 2005
Par Charles Gadda - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I have to echo many of the same complaints noted in the previous review. The quality of the colour plates was lackluster - a definate step down in terms of Angus McBride's usual work. I was also disappointed with some (though not all) of the B/W photos, in particular those that were scanned from previously published references. This book would have been much more valuable had new photos been taken, preferably from different angles.

The text, on the other hand, contained an awful lot of information and insights into Mycenaean warfare that were wholly new to me; in this respect I rate the book quite highly. This is especially important in light of how little information exists on this subject.

Overall, I am glad I bought the book, but still find the graphics were a big letdown. If you are interested in this subject, by all means get this book. The information contained herein is very useful indeed. Through Amazon the price is good, as well. Just be prepared for some disappointment.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A detailed and informative discussion. 19 mars 2006
Par Mrs. Cheryl A. Bullock - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I have had a great interest in the Mycenaean Age for some time.

Where this book is of value is that it painstakingly pieces together from limited pieces of disparate complicated evidence a reasonable picture (as far as can be ascertained) of Mycenaean warriers, weapons and armies. I have not seen this in any other work.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 an unexpected disappointment 29 octobre 2005
Par James Carpenter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
For an avid collector of Osprey books like myself, the name of Angus McBride is usually one to conjure with. That is why I am so surprised at the poor quality of Mr. McBride's illustrations in this book. Gone are the brilliant colors, heroically proportioned human forms, and attention to fine detail that so characterizes Mr. McBride's other work; the color plates in this book appear dull and unfinished, as if the artist was rushing to meet a deadline, and so was unable to properly complete his work.

The text, however, and the black-and-white illustrations are up to Osprey's usual fine standards. A brief historical section is followed by sections detailing army weapons, tactics, and organization, of great benefit to the wargamer and the casual military historian. Mr. Grguric does an especially fine job explaining the role of the light infantry swordsman on the battlefield, showing the effective role he played in countering the shield-armed heavy infantry, a revelation to those whose thinking is dominated by the image of the hoplite armies of Classical and Hellenistic Greece.

The book minus the color plates would definitely rate five stars; the plates, however, are so poor that they are a detriment to the overall appeal of the book. Possibly a future edition could include plates that are more in keeping with Angus McBride's normal high standard, making them a better fit for the quality of the book as a whole.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Very simplified reconstructions 20 mars 2007
Par Stefanie Groner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The Achaean warriors reconstrutions are very generic and simplified. The books laks in several important findigs and art representations (pottery, fresco, sculpture) of armour/corselets elements, weapons, shields, helmets etc... coming from the Late Helladic time.

No accurate and detailed research has been made for this book.
