“Makers of Ancient Strategy”

In this long-awaited prequel to the highly acclaimed “Makers of Modern Strategy”, Victor Davis Hanson challenges many of our preconceptions surrounding ancient warfare. While many believe the strategies of the distant past have little relevance to the present, Hanson convincingly argues that this is not the case. “Makers of Ancient Strategy” reveals how guerrilla warfare, counter-terrorism and the pre-emptive strike were all pioneered to some extent during the classical age. Hanson also examines the effects politics and trade had on the evolution of warfare in Greece and Italy. This book will, we believe, be required reading for both classicists and military historians.
