Dan Howard examines the tools of war employed in civilization’s earliest conflicts. From the introduction of massed infantry by the Sumerians (circa 26th century BC) through to the collapse of the chariot civilizations (circa 12th century BC), the Bronze Age is a crucial period of military development. Focussing on the cultures of the Aegean and the Near and Middle East (though with some reference to India and China), weapons, armour and chariots are described in detail. The author explains their construction and tactical use, as revealed by the latest research and archaeology as well as practical experimentation with the making and use of accurate replicas. In so doing, Dan Howard challenges established views and brings fresh insights to the study of this fascinating period of military history.
