The Armies of Classical Greece, Hardback Book

Description

The origin of the Western military tradition in Greece 750-362 BC is fraught with controversies, such as the date and nature of the phalanx, the role of agricultural destruction and the existence of rules and ritualistic practices.

This volume collects papers significant for specific points in debates or theoretical value in shaping and critiquing controversial viewpoints.

An introduction offers a critical analysis of recent trends in ancient military history and provides a bibliographical essay contextualizing the papers within the framework of debates with a guide to further reading.
