Great Battles of the Ancient WorldDVD - 2005
Hollywood has gone to elaborate lengths to recreate the violence and mayhem of ancient warfare in movies, but what were ancient battles really like? What weapons, tactics, armor, training, and logistics were used? What were the crucial factors that could turn the tide of battle, giving one side victory and consigning the other to slaughter, capture, or, at best, escape to fight another day? These lectures examine some of the most notable battles fought in the Mediterranean region from prehistoric times to the 4th century A.D., scrutinizing those few hours that determined the fates of empires.
