The experience of warfare shaped soldiers and their families in the ancient world. Drawing partly on modern studies of battle `syndromes', this collection of essays examines this important phenomenon. Contributions include: Warrior Mentality in Homer (Hans van Wees); Hoplite Warfare in Ancient Greece (Stephen Mitchell); Homosexuality and Warfare in Ancient Greece (Daniel Ogden); The Moulding of Macedon's Army (Alan Lloyd); Morale and the Roman Experience of Battle (A.D.Lee); The Roman Army and Morality in War (Catherine Gilliver); Battle in Ancient Egypt: the Triumph of Horus or the Cutting Edge of the Temple Economy (Ian Shaw).
