This in-depth visual guide, Warriors of the Ancient Greek World, boasts over 140 lavishly detailed photographed and illustrated recreations of the warrior panoplies of the fifth and fourth centuries BC.

It covers the heavy infantry and cavalry of Greece and Macedonia, the light infantry and horsemen of the Thracian territories and the fighting men and women of the vast Persian and Scythian realms.

The book has been crafted to show these ancient combatants in as much physical, gritty detail and character as possible. The combatants are seen torn from moments in time and dropped onto the page. It illustrates the range of distinct weapons and equipment carried by them, why it was needed and how it was made. It shows how the warriors may have looked whilst on campaign, mud, blood and all.
