Soldiers, Citizens, and the Symbols of War: From Classical Greece to Republican Rome, 500-167 B.C.


In this comprehensive overview of ancient warfare, Antonio Santosuosso explores how the tactical & strategic concepts of warfare changed between the beginning of the fifth century b.c. & the middle of the second century b.c. & why the West-Greece, Macedonia, & Rome-triumphed over the East-understood geographically as Persia or ideologically as Carthage. He also shows how the role of warrior related to the role of citizen & how the symbols & propaganda stemming from war emphasized & promoted the values of Western societies.
