Item description for Hellenistic Infantry Reform in the 160's Bc (Studies on the History of Ancient and Medieval Art of Warfare) (Studies on the History of Ancient and Medieval Art of Warfare) by Nicholas Sekunda...

Sekunda argues that in the 160s BC, the Ptolemaic and Seleucid infantry were reorganized to make them more successful and more competitive against the might of the Romans. This Romanization of the military took the form of new tactics and changes in the organization and in the equipment given to the soldier, with evidence coming from archaeological, literary, epigraphic and iconographic sources. Sekunda looks at the pre-Romanized organization of the infantry providing the necessary background history to the later reforms.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hellenistic Infantry Reform in the 160's Bc (Studies on the History of Ancient and Medieval Art of Warfare) (Studies on the History of Ancient and Medieval Art of Warfare)?

Hellenistic Infantry Reform in the 160's BC  Dec 11, 2007
Nicholas Sekunda, well known for more "popular" accounts of ancient military practices, has masterfully combined past separate works on Hellinistic military reforms in Egypt and Asia Minor into a single, more academic volume. I can't imagine a better, more authoritative study of this fascinating topic. Taking care to concisely review preceding Macedonian and early-Hellenistic practices, he then provides a superbly documented enumeration of likely new developments in the mid-2nd Century BC. Precise and logical at all times, Mr. Sekunda does not hestitate to make bold projections where the sparse surviving data justifies them - an insightful pushing of the envelope of our knowledge that makes his work even more interesting and valuable. This book definitely belongs on the shelf of anyone seriously interested in ancient Greek warfare.
