Greece was the scene of some of the most evocative and decisive battles in the ancient world. This volume brings together the ancient evidence and modern scholarship on twenty battlefields throughout Greece. It is a handy resource for visitors of every level of experience, from the member of a guided tour to the veteran military historian.

The introductory chapter outlines some of the most pressing and interesting issues in the study of Ancient Greek battles and battlefields and offers a crash course on ancient warfare. Twenty lively chapters explore battlefields selected for both their historical importance and their inspiring sites. In addition to accessible overviews of each battle, this book provides all the information needed for an intellectually and aesthetically rewarding visit, including transport and travel details, museum overviews, and further reading.

The book is written in an academic but accessible manner. For each study, there are already mentioned extensive bibliographies, without weighing down the text with notes that would make it lose its immediate purpose of guiding the reader to the battlefields. It is a book which serves this purpose very well and which also serves as an easy reference for any historian or enthusiast of war in antiquity. A book that I sincerely recommend.
