Críticas:

Campbell and Tritle have assembled engaging and valuable essays from an impressive list of contributors in the fields of classics, ancient history, and archaeology.... Though encyclopedic in scope, including entries on arms and armor, strategy, generalship, care of wounded, naval warfare, and logistics, the essays also constitute a vibrant retelling of the experience of ancient warfare. Well-supplied with maps and timelines, this volume should be included in any classics or military history collection. Highly Recommended. (J. D. Lyons, CHOICE)

Reseña del editor:

War lay at the heart of much of life in the classical world, from conflicts between tribes or states to internal or civil wars. Battles were resolved by face-to-face encounters―violent and bloody for the participants―and thus war was a very personal experience. Nevertheless, warfare and its conduct often had significant economic, social, or political consequences. The Oxford Handbook of Warfare in the Classical World offers a critical examination of war and organized violence, and their relevance beyond the battlefield. The volume's introduction begins with the ancient sources for the writing of war, preceded by broad surveys of warfare in ancient Greece and Rome. Also included herein are chapters analyzing new finds in battlefield archaeology and how the environment affected the ancient practice of war. A second section is comprised of broad narratives of classical societies at war, covering the expanse from classical Greece through to the later Roman Empire. Part III contains thematic discussions that examine closely the nature of battle: what soldiers experienced as they fought; the challenges of conducting war at sea; how the wounded were treated. A final section offers six exemplary case studies, including analyses of the Peloponnesian War, the Second Punic War, and Rome's war with Sasanian Persia. The handbook closes with an epilogue that offers an exploration of the legacy of classical warfare.
