American military historian Gabriel covers a period from the beginning of the Bronze Age, about 4,000 BCE through the end of the Roman and Byzantine Empires. First he addresses such aspects of military life as the physical conditions of soldiers, equipment, discipline and punishment, tactics, death and wounding, and military medical care. Then he profiles 18 major armies of antiquity, including those of Sumer and Akkad, China, Persia, Imperial Greece, Carthage, and Imperial Rome. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
