Synopsis: Aineias the Tactician (fourth century B.C.), the author of How to Survive Under Siege, is not only the earliest, but also the most historically interesting of the ancient military writers. Providing a fresh translation of Siege, Whitehead illuminates Aineias's vivid descriptions of what a typical Greek city-state was like at a time when most cities were dominated by two powerful and atypical ones--Athens and Sparta. He shows that in writing this important work Aineias drew not only on his own experiences, but on the works of Herodotus and Thucydides. The book also includes a comprehensive introduction to the author and his work, and a full historical commentary.

About the Author: David Whitehead is Professor of Classics in Queen’s University, in Belfast, Ireland.

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. New edition. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Aineias Tacticus (mid-fourth century BC) is not only the earliest but also one of the most historically interesting of ancient military writers. Important, too, as a social commentator, he sheds valuable light on the nature of life and the psychological and strategic preoccupations of a typical Greek city-state (polis) at a time dominated by two extraordinarily atypical ones, Athens and Sparta. In Aineias work we see what conditions were like in a polis obliged to play a minor and much more passive role in the history of its age - not laying siege like the big players but suffering it. His practical recommendations derive clearly from accumulated personal experience in the first place; but at the same time he also draws copious illustrative material from both Herodotus and Thucydides. This edition has the Greekless reader firmly in mind, providing a fresh modern translation of How to Survive Under Siege , a comprehensive introduction to Aineias and his work, and a full historical commentary.
