Spanning some 3500 years of history and moving from the Bronze to the Iron Age, this book describes the armies that fought on the battlefields of the Classical World, detailing how the composition of those armies changed as different cultures rose and fell from prominence – such as the peasant levies of the Egyptian Pharaohs or the well-drilled citizen soldiers of the Roman Republic. Including the development of tactics and technology, with detailed colour illustrations and fact-filled accompanying text, the book is the essential guide for any enthusiast for the period. Featuring two hundred colour and black and white photographs.
