Profusely illustrated, as with every Osprey title, this book offers a concise introduction to the world of Bronze Age warfare, covering mainland Greece and Crete. The predominantly archaeological nature of the evidence ensures that topics which are often prominent in Osprey books, such as recruitment and tactics, here take a back seat to a survey of military equipment, including weaponry, body armour and chariots.

McMillan Palgrave

Osprey's survey of Greek warriors of the period of the Bronze Age from 1600 to 1100 BC. More than a century has passed past since German archeologist Heinrich Schliemann discovered the treasures of Bronze Age Mycenae. The richly decorated artifacts of the entombed warriors, whose bodies still lay in their graves, confirmed that Homer's epic The Iliad was based upon true events, and that the Achaeans described in his poems probably did exist.

Through a combined study of the mythical tradition, archeological findings, and written sources, this fascinating addition to the Warrior series explores the evolution of warfare in the Bronze Age Greek world. Covering weaponry, clothing, helmets, and body armor, it provides a richly illustrated guide to the warriors who have shone from the pages of Homer's poem for almost three millennia.
