From School Library Journal:

ea. vol: 32p. diags. maps. chron. glossary. index. (Soldier Through the Ages Series). Watts. Sept. 1985. PLB $10.40. Grade 4-7 The ancient Greeks employed military tactics and weapons that were far superior to those of their contemporaries. The Greek Hoplite or infantryman, culled from the citizenry, was the first trained European soldier. In contrast, only the elite could serve as knights in Europe from a.d. 1100 to 1400. Individual glory was more important than group victory to The Medieval Knight. Both books describe the variety and evolution of the periods' weapons and fighting men in well-written two-page chapters. Detailed, full-color illustrations enhance the clear text. These attractive books are highly recommended for assignment needs and browsing enjoyment. Marguerite F. Raybould, Glendale Pub . Lib . , Calif.
