GREAT GENERALS OF THE ANCIENT WORLD

£25.00 £6.99

Using antiquity’s great commanders as study cases this is a fascinating introduction to the nature of warfare and the conditions that determined its successful conduct,. It is a useful starting point for anyone interested in the military history of this period(s). Professor Gabriel has selected the ten commanders whom he believes to be the greatest of them all. Those included, and more so those omitted, will surprise many readers. Conspicuous by their absence, for example, are Alexander the Great and Attila the Hun.
