Author Name    Hanson, Victor Davis. Introduction by John Keegan.

Title   THE WESTERN WAY OF WAR: INFANTRY BATTLE IN CLASSICAL GREECE.

Publisher    Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1989, first edition.

Seller ID   24885

244 pp, 8vo (8 5/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0394571886 "(This book) draws from an extraordinary range of sources - Greek poetry, drama, and vase painting, as well as historical records - to fashion a dramatic narrative of what actually took place on the battlefield. It is the first study to explore the actual mechanics of classical Greek battle from the vantage point of the infantryman - the brutal spear-thrusting and shield-pushing in the phalanx, the difficulty of fighting i n bronze armor, the mass panic and hysteria. Hanson discusses all facets of this terrifying, murderous business: the physical condition and age of the men and their commanders, their weapons, their capabilities, their spirit and morale, their l i ke ly wounds. His analysis also covers the social and political aspects of the soldier's experience, and he makes clear how profoundly the simple, brief, and brutal misery of infantry battle defined a man's entire relationship with his family, h is co mmu n ity, his country." Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling, one tiny closed tear, slight fading to spine color. Near Fine/Very Good
