From the Latin warriors on the Palatine Hill in the age of Romulus, to the last defenders of Constantinople in 1453 AD, the weaponry of the Roman Army was constantly evolving. Through glory and defeat, the Roman warrior adapted to the changing face of warfare. Due to the immense size of the Roman Empire, which reached from the British Isles to the Arabian Gulf, the equipment of the Roman soldier varied greatly from region to region.Through the use of materials such as leather, linen and felt, the army was able to adjust its equipment to these varied climates. Arms and Armour of the Imperial Roman Soldier sheds new light on the many different types of armour used by the Roman soldier, and combines written and artistic sources with the analysis of old and new archaeological finds. With a huge wealth of plates and illustrations, which include ancient paintings, mosaics, sculptures and coin depictions, this book gives the reader an unparalleled visual record of this fascinating period of military history. This book, the first of three volumes, examines the period from Marius to Commodus. Volume II covers the period from Commodus to Justinian, and Volume III will look at the period from Romulus to Marius.

"We shall never know how Marathon was won, but we can be fairly certain that valor alone would not have won it, nor even perhaps the combination of courage with the somewhat rudimentary tactical skill for which the style of Greek warfare at that time gave scope. The superiority of Greek equipment must have been an important factor here and elsewhere, and at times perhaps a decisive one."--from the introductionIn "Arms and Armor of the Greeks," Anthony M. Snodgrass uses available literary, archaeological, and artistic evidence to piece together a picture of ancient Greek armory from the Mycenaean period through the campaigns of Alexander the Great. The ancient Greeks were neither populous nor rich in natural resources, Snodgrass explains, so it is remarkable that they succeeded in battle as often as they did."Snodgrass's book on Greek arms and armour must rank already as a standard textbook... It is as clear as any book can be on a surprisingly ill-documented subject."-- "Economist""Helpsto explain,why (for one thing) the Greeks won the Persian Wars and how they then stuck for centuries, with true military unimaginativeness, to their far from enterprising hoplite phalanx tactics."-- "Times Literary Supplement"

Hono sapiens, homo pugnans, and so it has been since the beginning of recorded history. In the Middle Ages, especially, armed conflict and the military life were so much a part of the political and cultural development that a general account of this period is, in large measure, a description of how men went to war.

"Brawl ridiculous offers a new and fascinating perspective on the swordfighting sequences in Shakespeare's plays. Writing with careful attention to Elizabethan performance conditions, Charles Edelman provides a fresh understanding of how Shakespeare's many and diversified battle scenes, duels and single combats would have been presented by his own company. Far from being a bit of violent action added merely to please the 'groundlings', Shakespeare's innovative use of stage combat is shown to be an important means of reinforcing the poetic and dramatic significance of his plays, from the early Histories, to the Romances and the great Tragedies." "Written with clarity and a generous measure of humour, Brawl ridiculous combines comprehensive research into English history with an uncommon awareness of the practicalities of stage production, in both Elizabethan times and our own."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
