Hellenistic Military & Naval Developments

This item is temporary out of stock

Hellenistic Military and Naval Developments is a collection of three lectures held at Trinity College, Cambridge, by W.W. Tarn, about infantry, cavalry and elephants, and siege and naval warfare in the Hellenistic era.

Reprint of the 1930 edition
170 pages

The printed version of the three lectures concern:

  • Development of warfare in the Hellenistic era & infantry
  • Cavalry and elephants
  • Siege and naval warfare

Though now in part outdated, Tarn's forcefully argued deductions still make for important and interesting reading. The book is completed with several appendices on the numbers of Persian cavalry, Chinese evidence for the war-horse, Surenas' camels and a discussion on the dikrotos and the trireme question.
