The Cambridge history of Greek and Roman warfare( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Warfare was the single biggest preoccupation of historians in antiquity. In recent decades fresh textual interpretations, numerous new archaeological discoveries and a much broader analytical focus emphasising social, economic, political and cultural approaches have transformed our understanding of ancient warfare. Volume I of this two-volume History reflects these developments and provides a systematic account, written by a distinguished cast of contributors, of the various themes underlying the warfare of the Greek world from the Archaic to the Hellenistic period and of Early and Middle Republican Rome. For each broad period developments in troop-types, equipment, strategy and tactics are discussed. These are placed in the broader context of developments in international relations and the relationship of warfare to both the state and wider society. Numerous illustrations, a glossary and chronology, and information about the authors mentioned supplement the text. This will become the primary reference work for specialists and non-specialists alike. --

How to win on the battlefield : the 25 key tactics of all time by Robert Johnson( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book we examine and then analyse, through a series of case studies, 25 of the most important tactics used in war on land, at sea and in the air. These are illustrated with examples from around the globe and from across history in order to demonstrate the enduring value of each one. While much of the current intellectual debate on war focuses on what is new, or even 'post-modern', we are eager to show that, despite obvious changes in weaponry, technology and mobility, certain key techniques and principles have been applied with equal success in the military encounters of the past and are still relevant today. Since so many works of military history focus narrowly on the West, we have selected examples from as wide a field as possible and we have tried to raise awareness of some less well-known battles. Our intention is to highlight the function of each tactical concept in its historical setting"--Preface

15 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Volume 14 The Cambridge Ancient History concludes its story. This latest volume embraces the wide range of approaches and scholarship which have in recent decades transformed our view of Late Antiquity. In particular, traditional political and social history has been enormously enhanced by integrating the rich evidence of Christian writing, and the constantly expanding results of archaeological research. A picture emerges of a period of considerable military and political disruption, but also of vibrant intellectual and cultural activity. The volume begins with a series of narrative chapters. These are followed by sections on government and institutions, economy and society, and religion and culture. A section on the provinces and the non-Roman world marks the rise of new and distinct political and cultural entities. This volume, and the CAH, ends in around AD 600, before the Arab conquests shattered for ever what remained of the unity of the Roman world
