The ancient Greeks established modes of and attitudes about warfare that profoundly influenced later European and European-based peoples. Indeed, the triumph of Western civilization from Greco-Roman times to the present owes an incalculable debt to the Greeks. In fascinating detail, this volume covers Greek weapons, armor, battle formations and tactics, and naval warfare, supported by numerous eyewitness accounts of battles and other pivotal events.
