Homer's Iliad is not history, but it is historical fiction, and it is the most obvious point at which to begin an account of ancient Greek warfare. Lire la première page

The perfect companion for all ancient military history enthusiasts is the ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKERCalix Imperium, Coupe à vin en étain ROMA VICTRIX

From the rise of Greece to the fall of Rome, this superbly illustrated volume is a wonderful account of the warriors and battles that dominated Europe and the Near East for more than 1,000 years. The story begins at Troy, drawing upon Homeric legend and modern archaeological evidence. It continues through Greece''s Persian and Peloponnesian Wars, Alexander the Great, Rome''s Punic Wars, Hannibal, Julius Caesar, and the barbarian invasions. Although John Warry''s text is worth reading, the color drawings of uniforms, equipment, weapons, warships, siege engines, and more are the real highlight and make the chronicle extremely accessible. Warfare in the Classical World will excite both readers who have a mature interest in the period and, although it''s not a kids'' book, children can become acquainted with ancient history for the first time.

Livre bienvenu qui instruit de belle manière le lecteur sur les us et coutumes de la guerre dans l'Antiquité grecque et romaine. Les dessins de reconstitutions de matériels, d'armes et de tenues de combat sont de très grande qualité. L'ouvrage mériterait d'être traduit en français.

Don't think. Just buy it. Even if the cat has to go hungry. 17 février 1999
Par K. Wofford - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
An absolute must have for anyone who is remotely interested in warfare in the classical world. Not just dry descriptions, but beautiful, realistic, full color illustrations of the soldiers from each important evoloution. (Such as the Homeric and Spartan hoplites, the Macedonian Phalangite, the Companion Cavalryman, the Thracian Peltast, the varied Persian troops, and the various evoloutions of the Roman Legionary and their foes (including Hannibal's Iberians, the Celts, and the Huns), along with detailed descriptions of each one's panopoly and tactics. Also describes all major battles, seagoing and siege tactics and the historical timeline surrounding each. The one thing it lacks is analysis of the great generals, which is appropriate as a good study of any great leader can easily fill a book this size. However, is a must-have companion to any T. A. Dodge or similar work on the period. Really puts a face on the fighting soldier.

A wonderful reference on Classical Warfare 5 janvier 2002
Par DH - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a beautifully balanced book. It covers the classical period between 1600BC and 800AD in a very organised and readable way. Each period is prefaced with the heading "Ancient Authorities" and outlines where the following information is sourced. Then the period is discussed in flowing narrative which highlights the key personalities and events of the time along with an indepth look at the mechanics of warfare. The strategy and tactics presented is blended nicely with the historical discussion. The numerous battle maps and accompanying data are a treasure for the military, history and wargaming buffs. The artwork throughout is first class as are the maps. I particularly like the full page colour depictions of combatants from different armies with detailed explanatory notes, some of the best I've seen. I found the middle part of the book focussed a little more heavily on the historical aspect. It did not contain as many battle maps as the first and latter part did, and I found myself flicking ahead to see when I would reach one of the battle descriptions and maps. In summary, this is a terrific encyclopedia and ranks as one of the nicest books I have seen on the subject. Superb.

Great Overview of Ancient Warfare 29 octobre 2005
Par R. Forsythe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is an excellent book on ancient warfare. It covers warfare from as far back as the Trojan War to the fall of the Western Roman Empire. John Warry makes the book a lot more interesting than other books of this era by accompanying the text with detailed drawings of soldiers, weapons, and galleys and also by adding several fairly detailed maps of time periods and battles. The book also has a time line that runs along the bottom of every page that provides info on events occurring around the world as well as summarizing the info in the chapters.

Another great thing about the book, that was also covered by other reviewers, is the section of ancient authorities. This adds to the credibility of the book by stating sources as well as just by providing information about scholars of the times.

There isn't too much to complain about, but if I had to say something, I wish that there was more time spent on warfare at the time of Imperial Rome. Only 2 out of 12 chapters cover this 400-500 year period of time though Republican Rome is covered in detail.

Overall though this is a great buy and a great reference for ancient warfare.

Exquisite book, but the Roman section is disappointing 27 juin 2003
Par Brian C. Mueller - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This truly is a marvelous book and provides a wonderful introduction to warfare in the classical world. The only issue I had with the book was the scant details on warfare during the Roman Empire itself. The Greece section -- from Homeric times to Alexander the Great and his successors -- comprises half the book's pages, and then the Roman Republic section -- from Pyrrhus to the beginning of Octavian/Augustus rule -- comprises about 80 pages. This leaves only 15 pages for the Empire itself, about 400 years of history, and the section scarcely went into any detail whatsoever. I'm not sure why the author chose largely to ignore this critical part of Roman history; perhaps he thought there was enough information out there already.
This one problem aside, the book is simply marvelous, and as long as you don't mind the author breezing over Imperial Rome, it's a must-buy. The Alexander the Great section in particular is spectacular.

Text-only version of the Illustrated Encyclopedia 12 janvier 2001
Par P. volini - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book has exactly the same text as the Illustrated Encyclopedia of ancient warfare by the same author, but there are no illustrations. If you can spare a few more bucks, by the illustrated version: it has a wealth of battle maps, color plates and other illustrated material which makes this text-only version pale in comparison, although it is still quite informative. I give it 4 stars while I would give the illustrated version 5.
