Warfare in Western Civilization explores how civilizations and cultures made war on the battlefields of the Near East and Europe over a period of 4500 years. Through the use of dozens of tactical maps, this fascinating one-volume introduction to the art of war during western civilization's ancient, classical, medieval and early modern periods offers a fresh perspective on the sophisticated nature of pre-modern warfare.

This first work of a two-volume set serves as a solid introduction to ancient warfare. Carey analyzes the main tactical systems in light of Archer Jones’s tactical matrix (heavy infantry, heavy cavalry, light infantry, light cavalry). Nice selection of key battles. Excellent diagrams and maps. Glossary and select bibliography.

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 historians
