1.0 out of 5 stars More like society of the ancient greeks., 3 Aug 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: The Wars Of The Ancient Greeks (Cassell's History Of Warfare) (Hardcover)
The title of this book is completely wrong. It should be How Warfare effected the Society of the Ancient Greeks. Although a few battles are described in a little detail the main content of the text details the effect the wars and warfare had on the political and social structures of the various greek city-states. If you want information on the individual battles and wars look elsewere.
My other gripes with this book are the illustrations. Although quiet good it would be more helpful if they were anywhere near the text that refers to them. Some illustrations are pages before they are mentioned and others are several pages later. The author also has a rant at the end of the book with regards to Alexander the Great. He spends pages putting his argument that Alexander should be compared to Hitler than actually telling us about his great campaign across Persia.
I was very disappointed with this book.
