Arms and Armor of the Greeks


Write The First Customer Review

In Arms and Armor of the Greeks, A. M. Snodgrass uses 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. Ancient Greece was neither populous nor rich in natural resources, Snodgrass explains, so it is remarkable that the Greeks succeeded in battle as often as they did. A new afterword written for this edition comments on recent research and discoveries in the field.
