Ancient Warfare Answers (272): Targeting battlefield leaders
Patron of the podcast, Mathew, sent this question in. Are there accounts of artillery specifically targeting leaders, for example, a Legatus or centurion? Or dedicated expert archers, etc., to do the same? Imagine a sniper-type scenario. This seems like a tactic that could have been used to demoralise a force and eliminate command and control quickly.
