About the Author

Dr Albracht was one of the scholars who worked on Ebeling's Homeric Lexicon (successive editions from 1871). He published the first part of Kampf und Kampfschilderung bei Homer in 1886 when he was teaching at the prestigious Schulpforte in eastern Germany, the second in 1895 when he was headmaster of the nearby cathedral grammar school at Naumburg an der Saale.

An in-depth, scholarly yet fascinating close study 7 Jun. 2005
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Originally published in German in 1956 as "Verwundung und Tod in der Ilias", by Peter Jones and now published in a new edition as Battle And Battle Description In Homer: A Contribution To The History Of War by the editorial and translation team of Peter Jones, Malcolm Willcock and Gabriele Wright is now expertly available in English (the Greek passages as well as the German), and enhanced with a preface that places the work in terms of oral theory, as well as a full appendix. Though Battle And Battle Description In Homer acknowledges that Homer is a poet, not a staff instructor, author Albracht applies the Homeric text to create a convincing scene of how the workings of battle proceeded in the Iliad, from the council of war, to marshalling troops, the use of chariots, massed attack and defense, retreat, flight, pursuit, protection in the field, attack and defense of a fortified camp, the siege and defense of a fortified city, and much more. An in-depth, scholarly yet fascinating close study of what classic literature can tell us of military strategy, tactics, and history.
A very small and interesting book 28 Aug. 2012
By Native Texan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you love the ILIAD this is a very small and interesting book. The information is excellent, but it's more of an article than a book.
