The Cambridge History of Greek and Roman Warfare: Volume 2, by Hans Van Wees and Michael Whitby Philip Sabin

By Hans Van Wees and Michael Whitby Philip Sabin

I've got simply accomplished analyzing the 1st quantity of the 2, and the evaluation is written dependent upon the 1st ebook. inspite of the identify this isn't a heritage of Greek and Roman conflict, yet quite a sequence of essays prepared in response to subject. the standard of the writing varies vastly, from the excellent prose of Lendon to the tough and nearly unreadable essays through Hornblower and corridor. the easiest essays are these through Hanson(historiography of historic war) Whitby (reconstructing historic Wrfare) Strauss (Naval wrestle and sieges) Billows (international family members) Sekunda (Land forces) Roth(War) Sabin(land battles) Serrati (Warfare and the state). The association of this quantity is abnormal, and to me non-intuitive (yet it sort of feels to be the recent type followed through Cambridge college Press as may be noticeable of their volumes on seventeenth century philosophy) since it is split into sections and every into chapters that reflect the former part there's a vacuum of history details or continuity. it will be significant to have a deep wisdom of the interval (as good as deep wallet to manage to pay for the book!) and a instruction manual resembling Montagu's "Battles of the Greek and Roman Worlds" available.

The bibliography is excellent, the maps are stable, the illustrations negative. At this expense it's disgraceful that they're black and white, and a few of include of the poorest caliber of replica. P. 384 has a photograph of the through Appia that appears as though it used to be photocopied out of a 1950's college textbook!P.427 "Legion vs Phalanx at Pydna" is simply too small and missing unlike comprehend the aspect, and the reproductions of Greek pottery are sad.

Yet it is a very illuminating quantity.
