Sieges played a central role in many conflicts of the ancient world, and generals such as Darius, Alexander the Great, Hannibal and Scipio Africanus successfully used siege craft to gain their objectives. As siege tactics became an integral part of war, generals employed the minds of engineers and scientists to develop tactics that ranged from penetrating the defenses or blockading the city through tricks and deception. This fascinating book explores the development of siege warfare in the ancient world from Ancient Persia in the 6th century BC to the 4th century Roman World, examining the techniques and weapons on this period. Combines material previously published as Elite 121: Ancient Siege Warfare Elite126: Siege Warfare in the Roman World 146 BC-AD 378, New Vanguard 78: Greek and Roman Siege Machinery 399 BC-AD 363.
