About this book

The cradle of western civilisation, the ancient Greek world, consisted of a
series of independent city states some of which, such as Athens and Sparta,
became major world powers. This authoritative volume by Nicholas Sekunda covers
Greek warfare in the Classical Period, which stretches from the Greek victories
over the Persian Empire to the death of Alexander the Great at the end of the
4th century. The book includes such famous battles such as Marathon, Thermopylae
and Salamis and offers a detailed account of Greek military dress during this
period, supported by 12 full colour plates by Angus McBride.

Nicholas Sekunda was born in 1953. After studying Ancient History and Archaeology
at Manchester University, he went on to take his Ph.D. in 1981. He has taken part
in archaeological excavations in Poland, Iran and Greece, participated in a
research project on ancient Persian warfare for the British institute of Persian
Studies. He has published numerous books and academic articles, and is currently
teaching at the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnology in Torun, Poland.

Angus McBride was one of the world's most respected historical illustrators, who
contributed to more than 90 Osprey titles over three decades. Born in 1931 of
Highland parents but orphaned as a child, he was educated at Canterbury Cathedral
Choir School. He worked in advertising agencies from 1947, and after national
service, emigrated to South Africa where he lived for several years before
relocating to Ireland. Angus sadly passed away in 2007.
