9781848842939: Bronze Age Military Equipment

This book is a fascinating discussion of the development of the military equipment of the earliest organized armies. Dan Howard describes the development of weapons, armor and chariots, how they were made and their tactical use in battle. Spanning from the introduction of massed infantry by the Sumerians (c. 26th century BC) through to the collapse of the chariot civilizations (c. 12th century BC), this is the period of the epic struggles described in the Old Testament and Homer's Iliad, the clashes of mighty empires like those of the Babylonians, Egyptians and Hittites.

About the Author:

Dan Howard is a historical author who offers great insight into the Bronze Age, the battles the fought and the weapons they fought them with.

Review:

The main strength of this book is Howard's determination to stick to provable facts. He gives a very convincing explanation. A very valuable piece of work. A splendid overview of the current state of knowledge on the military equipment of these early civilisations. WWW.HISTORYOFWAR.ORG
