About this Item

84 pages. 80 illustrations and diagrams. 22 maps. Bibliography. Format is approximately 8.25 inches by 10.5 inches. Small ink mark at bottom front corner. The Wargames Research Group (WRG) is a British publisher of rules and reference material for miniature wargaming. Founded in 1969 they were the premier publisher of tabletop rules during the seventies and eighties, publishing rules for periods ranging from ancient times to modern armored warfare, and reference books which are still considered standard works for amateur researchers and wargamers. They are best known for their seminal ancient and medieval period rules, and also for De Bellis Antiquitatis and Hordes of the Things fantasy rules. The reference works published by WRG are accurate enough to be cited in scholarly texts. The format of this book covers three separate sections. The first describes Greek and Persian troop types, and the typical army compositions, and then deals with the Great Persian Wars in some detail. The second sections describes Greek troop developments after this conflict, and the Peloponnesian War within Greece. The third section details the developments in the Persian Army following the time of Xerxes, and the various campaigns of the 4th Century B.C. as the Greeks took the offensive against Persia--in the intervals of warfare among themselves, frequently fomented by the Persians. The culmination of the military developments of the 4th Century was the army of Macedon, which finally overthrew the Persian Empire, after subjugating classical Greece. Bookseller Inventory # 75175
