Format: Broché
L'un des tous premiers tomes de la série Elite chez Osprey.

Un texte qui nous présente l'art de la guerre de la Grèce classique des 5ème et 4ème siècles avant JC. La Guerre du Péloponnèse est très présente dans cet opus. Comme toujours les planches d'Angus McBride sont somptueuses.

HASH(0x94638c9c) étoiles sur 5 Great study of the famous warriors of the Classical Period 3 avril 2002
Par Eduardo J. Tellez A - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
As always Osprey may a nice contribution to anyone intEresting in the Ancient Warfare of the Greeks, this books is not a deep look or study of the famous Hoplites or armies of ancient times but it could be use as a nice introduction to a really hard subject.
This was the first book I bought from Nick Sekunda and I was not disappointed, after reading this title I decide to buy other from the same author and follow the recommendations he made of other works that would really help you. The Author use the Plates of the one of the best historical illustrators Angus McBride to traces the development of Greek warfare throughout the classical period and offers a detailed account of Greek military dress during this famous period.
This book provides a unique and practical perspective on dificult theme in military history with wonderfully descriptive illustrations, to tell you the true I see this title as an invaluable resource for historians, if you are into Military History you should add this book to your shelves.
Look for other titles of Nick Sekunda of the Greece Armies and the Classical period but to understand more of this subject the books of Peter Connolly on "GREECE AND ROME AT WAR" and John Gibson Warry "Warfare in the Classical World: An Illustrated Encyclopedia of Weapons,Warriors and Warfare in the Ancient Civilisations of Greece and Rome" but for me the best study since it appear for the first time on 1967 but is still the principal comprehensive work on this subject is "Arms and Armor of the Greeks" by Anthony M. Snodgrass, without forgeting the recent work "The Wars of the Ancient Greeks" by Victor Davis Hanson.

Most of the text of this book is actually the plate commentary. Both the text and the plates themselves naturally focus mostly on hopltes, but several forms of light infantry, as well as cavalry, civilians, and Thracian barbarians are all depicted as well. The McBride plates, of which there are 12, are awesome as usual.
HASH(0x94638fcc) étoiles sur 5 The evolution of ancient Greek military wear and armor 5 mai 2016
Par Anibal Madeira - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is truly one of the best books by Sekunda. It is an excellent work focusing on what the ancient Greeks from the most important city states of ancient Greece would wear during their military duties; both clothing and defensive equipment.

In this Sekunda is unsurpassed. In this book he doesn’t focus only on Athens and Sparta (as almost all other author’s do), following and providing valuable information and details on many other states, integrating those descriptions in a magnificently well resumed military history of the Greek classical period.

He avoids the basics; the well-trodden path. In a “revolutionary” way regarding this “Elite Series”, the author follow the wonderful art by Angus McBride as a compass for the history telling. He only mentions the most important issues that the target audience for this book already well know, focusing on less known battles and the whys of the evolution of equipment and tactics and even social changes. An immense amount of issues are explained, including the rise of the epilektoi/picked troops in many cities, the increased importance of the psiloi, the Thracian influence and the peltast, the changes in defensive equipment and the necessity of the ekdromoi, shield blazons, cavalry and the hamippos, the rising impostance of the mercenaries, among many other issues. All integrated with the historical political and military background, providing a fast way to better understand some complexities of ancient Greece.

As usual, Sekunda provides fascinating photographs of artifacts, tokens, statuettes, bas-reliefs, vases and funerary monuments which constitute a great visual aid.

The color plates are Angus McBride in his golden age. Perfect, with movement, action and story. Great respect, intelligence and interaction between the author and the illustrator in this book. The plates include: A lakedaimonian officer interacting with Samian, Argive and Athenian (from the Alkmaionid clan) hoplites; in a frosty background, Thracian peltasts fight Greek ekdromoi; Thessalian cavalrymen pursuing a Boeotian hoplite; Athenian cavalryma and recruit; two psiloi and a dead Athenian hoplite; Lakedaimoinian officer (mislabelled as a Tegean hoplite), a Lakedaimonian hoplite and a Tegean hoplite facing approaching riders; powerfully built Boeotian and Theban hoplites receiving awards; marching army with a Lakedaimonian cavalryman, a Macedonian hoplite and a Cretan mercenary archer in the foreground; the fighting between Arcadian and Eleian hoplites in the Olympiads of 364 BC; Thessalian and Aenianian Javelinman and a Theban general officer at the second battle of Mantineia; An Athenian prodromos with his hamippos supporting psiloi facing an Euboean hoplite; a street altercation between hoplites (with Athenian, Rhodian and mercenary hoplites and a baggage carrier).

Unfortunately this great title has some severe shortcomings which if corrected, I would happily give a well-deserved 5 stars rating. I will point out some of them: I know no Greek equipment token with 17 – 20 cm diameter; to my knowledge they were all the size of small coins. There are almost no information on most offensive equipment and their peculiarities (including swords and the doru). There is an incorrect caption in a plate. Etc.

In conclusion, a great book with some minor mistakes and omissions.
HASH(0x949b2510) étoiles sur 5 Useful as a very basic survey 17 mai 2012
Par Michael K. Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The coverage here is warfare in classical Greece from the Persian wars at the beginning of the 5th Century to the death of Alexander the Great, a period of roughly two centuries. The Greek situation changed dramatically during that time, both socially and politically, but the military arts really didn't. Mostly, the state came to play a more central role, which lead to increased uniformity in dress and equipment, at least by region. Nearly everything we know about the armies of this period comes from the works of Herodotus, Thucydides, Xenophon, and a few others, augmented by sculptures and illustrations on ceramics, and a very few archaeological finds. The hoplites of the earlier period were heavy infantrymen armed with spears and round shields, and the Spartans were the masters of the method. They didn't wear armor at first (or even much clothing), but helmets, leather jerkins, and bronze greaves gradually were introduced. In most engagements, there were no missile weapons worth mentioning (other than javelins), and the cavalry (without stirrups) never played more than a limited role, so war was very much a hand-to-hand affair on foot. The text provides a useful survey of military and political events over the time span covered. The color plates this time are taken from surviving illustrations or are entirely a work of the artist's imagination, but they give one the flavor of the period.

I used this book as a reference for painting plastic Greek figures. The color plates are beautiful and confirmed the accuracy of the figures. Overall, this is a nice introduction to the subject.
