Mobile version (beta). A History and Analysis of 187 Engagements by Fred Eugene Ray J. pub.

With its mixture of famous battles and storied commanders, warfare in 4th century B.C. Greece has long held a fascination for military enthusiasts and the general public alike. Histories, biographies, and popular culture have turned the exploits of noted generals like Xenophon and Iphicrates of Athens, Epaminondas of Thebes, and the father-son team of Philip II and Alexander the Great of Macedonia into the stuff of legend. Drawing from ancient accounts along with suitable analogs, this detailed work offers meticulous reconstructions of 187 of the 4th century's most significant land engagements, considering tactical patterns, evolving trends, and the lasting impact of the era's most influential military minds. By separating myth from reality, these recreations provide incredible insight into past ways of war that continue to influence the course of combat today.

Fred Ray has done it again - a second book on ancient historical warfare, analysis and troop details you could only dream to acquire. For a model wargamer / PC wargamer of ancients this is a must-have book. Spanning the famous battles of Macedon's rise through Philip II and then its expansion through his son Alexander the Great, the book also covers the Succssor Wars up to 300 BC and many minor engagements just right for gaming / re-enactment. Fred Ray follows his successful formula of battle analysis first developed in his book 'Greek Land Battles of the 5th Century' with another book now on the 4th Century covering in detail 187 engagements. For a wargamer this is a dream book with all your troop details for both sides neatly summarised plus an historical perspective and insights in to the role of much heard of troops like the Hypaspists.

Mr. Ray's sedcond book. Great detail and analysis. Readers should acqure his first book on the 5th Century. I hope he does a 3rd Century covering Italy.

This book "cuts to the chase" with well-reasoned estimates as to the nature and deployment of armies throughout this critical historical period. This allows for the comparison and study of these battles in a manner I have never seen elsewhere. I recommend this book to any student of military history.
