"This is an interesting work with a lot of clearly presented information and will be useful to history students in military schools and to amateur military historians."
-Anthony J. Papalas, Professor of History, East Carolina University,
Journal of Military History
"This first work of a two-volume set (see also Warfare in the Medieval World) serves as a solid introduction to ancient warfare. Carey analyzes the main tactical systems in light of Archer Jones's tactical matrix.... Nice selection of key battles. Excellent diagrams and maps."
-Steven D. Fratt
