Ancient Warfare: Ancient Persian Warfare

Warfare is as old as civilization. Each volume in the Ancient Warfare series describes a key civilization’s armed forces and her military history, showing how her armies fought and what an ordinary soldier might experience. This volume looks at the powerful Achaemnid Persian culture, exploring what it was like to fight in the army of Cyrus the Great, using war elephants and heavy armor against enemies such as Alexander. The books include full colour battle maps and technical drawings of weapons and unit formations. The Ancient Warfare series is a fun and attractive way to learn more about the military of the ancient Egyptians, Persians, Greeks and Romans.
