Nitpicker’s Guide to Ancient Military

By David Flin

Have you ever watched a film showing ancient armies, and felt that something wasn’t quite right? Or are you the sort of person who feels smug when you can point out where these films get it wrong?
This book explains the difference between what happened historically, and why it was done that way, and compares this with books, films, and TV shows to see where the latter get it right and where they get it wrong.
