The Ancient Warrior examines the various arms that fought on an ancient European and Middle Eastern battlefield, and how the equipment and training of the warriors developed over time.

From the chariots of Ancient Egypt to the legions of Ancient Rome (via the Ancient Greek hoplites and many other civilizations), The Ancient Warrior demonstrates the effects of technology and increasing tactical sophistication on how ordinary soldiers actually fought, and the equipment they used to fight.

With detailed colour illustrations and fact-filled accompanying text, the book is the essential guide for any enthusiast for the period.
