War elephants, chariots, cavalry; ringmail, belly-bows and spears; Kadesh, Alesia, Masada – Fighting Techniques of the Ancient World describes the equipment, armour and tactics of soldiers in Europe and the Middle East in an age before gunpowder. The book explores the tactics required to win battles and points out how little has changed in some respects in the art of war.
Using specially-commissioned colour and black-and-white artworks to illustrate the battles, equipment and tactics of the era, the book shows in detail the methods by which armies, including Assyrians and Roman forces, prevailed over their foes, and why other armies were far less successful.

Arranged by type of warfare – from infantry to mounted warfare to siege and finally naval warfare – Fighting Techniques of the Ancient World is an essential companion for any reader in warfare in the classical age.
