Review

"A small masterpiece of style and scholarship." -- The Economist

"Enthralling. . . . One closes this book wishing that its final verdict was as well known as more familiar tenets of Greek wisdom." -- Christopher Hitchens, Newsday

"[Hanson's] vivid style and meticulous combing of the ancient literary, archaeological, and epigraphical sources have produced a near masterpiece of historical imagination and reconstruction. . . . Masterful and gripping." -- Journal of Interdisciplinary History

"[Hanson] has opened up a whole new way of looking at classical Greek war-fare. . . . The study of Greek warfare can never be quite the same again." -- Journal of Hellenic Studies --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievably good. Visceral look at infantry battle, like nothing I've read previously.
