As with the elite title on the Greeks by the same author, most of the book, save a brief introduction to the organization of the Achamenid Persian Army, is a highly detailed plate commentary. The plates are pretty good but are a little too similar. The text is a fine source on this subject, detailing a variety of troop types including several kinds of the Immortals bodyguard regiments.

The Persian army has received little attention compared to their Greek counterparts. This introduction goes some ways to redress that. As usual, lots of colorful plates and brief descriptions of some of their major battles.

I really don't appreciate the artwork. All of the Persian troops are drawn with a wrap around their mouths. The colours are garish and the anatomy is very awkward.

This book was good because there were drawn pictures which illsutrated ancient Iran's army uniform. There were some artifacts that what appeared to be Iranian women were engaing in battle field.
