Books Info:

The Rise and Fall of Ancient Greece free pdf This book provides a fascinating and stunningly illustrated account of ancient Greece and its classical heritage. It chronicles military and political development in Athens, Sparta and other ancient Greek city-states, all revealed in magnificent detail. It features a special focus on the life, tactics and military campaigns of Alexander the Great, one of the most important soldiers the world has ever known. It explains and examines the military techniques and strategies, operations and training of the Greek armies. It features over 500 photographs, illustrations, maps, battle plans and fact boxes. The first half of this military and political history details how the Greeks recovered from the collapse of the first Minoan, Cretan and Mycenaean civilizations, and moved towards democracy. It highlights the Persian Wars, shows Athens during the Golden Age before it was wrecked by the wars with Sparta, and describes the men and women who made Greece's name resonate down the ages. The second part of the book describes the rule of Alexander the Great, a military genius who helped spread Greek culture across half of Asia. Nigel Rodgers shows how Alexander's death without an heir was an irreparable loss and that ultimately his heir turned out to be the Roman empire. With information on weapons and fleets, on the tactics of Greek soldiers, and the organization of great armies, this is a breathtaking analysis of 2000 years of impassioned politics, warfare and culture.
