9780061142086: Wars of the Ancient Greeks (Smithsonian History of Warfare)

This brilliant account covers a millennium of Greek warfare. With specially commissioned battle maps and vivid illustrations, Victor Davis Hanson takes the reader into the heart of Greek warfare, classical beliefs, and heroic battles. This colorful portrait of ancient Greek culture explains why their approach to fighting was so ruthless and so successful.

  • Development of the Greek city-state and the rivalries of Athens and Sparta.
  • Rise of Alexander the Great and the Hellenization of the Western world.
  • Famous thinkers—Sophocles, Socrates, Demosthenes—who each faced his opponent in battle, armed with spear and shield.
  • Unsurpassed military theories that still influence the structure of armies and the military today.
