VIRIATHUS
by Louis Silva

Tape marks on inside of slightly creased dustjacket. Good. In the middle years of the second century BC, Rome was engaged in the conquest and pacification of what is now Spain and Portugal. They met with determined resistance from several tribes but nobody defied them with more determination and skill than Viriathus. Of humble birth, he soon proved himself a gifted and audacious commander, inflicting repeated humiliating reverses upon the superior Roman forces and stalling their efforts for eight years. Unbeaten in the field, he was only overcome when the Romans resorted to bribing some of his own men to assassinate him.

ROME VERSUS CARTHAGE: THE WAR AT SEA
by Christa Steinby

The epic struggle between Carthage and Rome is most famous for land battles in Italy, on the Iberian peninsula and in North Africa. But warfare at sea, which played a vital role in the First and Second Punic Wars, rarely receives the attention it deserves. And it is the monumental clashes of the Carthaginian and Roman fleets in the Mediterranean that are the focus of this absorbing study. It shows how the Romans' seafaring tradition and their skill, determination and resourcefulness eventually gave them a decisive advantage.

THE WAY OF THE SAMURAI
by Richard Storry

For more than 700 years Japan was dominated by a military caste - the samurai. This portrait captures the varying moods of medieval Japan. Out of it emerges the austere and unyielding disciplines, drawn from Zen and from Confucian ethics, which safeguarded samurai domination and shaped every attitude

SUN TZU'S ART OF WAR: THE MODERN CHINESE INTERPRETATION
by Sun Tzu and General Tao Hanzhang

Sun Tzu was the most famous military scientist, and one of the ablest commanders, in ancient China. Asian warlords, and modern leaders as dissimilar as Mao Tse-tung and General Eisenhower, have used his principles to change the shape of the world. Interpreted here by General Tao Hanzhang, one of the architects of the Communist Revolution, Tzu’s advice on timing, maneuvering, flexibility, and knowledge of the enemy’s leaders, strengths, and weaknesses is as powerful today as when it was first issued.

ANTIOCHUS THE GREAT
by Michael Taylor

In 223 BC, Antiochus III inherited the Seculid Empire - an empire ravaged by civil strife. Proving himself a true heir of Alexander, he defeated rebel armies and embarked on a campaign of conquest and reunification. Although repulsed by Ptolemy IV at the Battle of Raphia, his eastern campaigns reaffirmed Seleucid hegemony as far as modern Afghanistan and Pakistan. Returning westward, he defeated Ptolemy V at Panion (200 BC) and succeeded in adding Koile Syria to his realm. At the height of his powers, he challenged growing Roman might, but his expeditionary force was crushed at Thermopyla and he was finally decisively defeated at the epic battle of Magnesia.

HANNIBAL'S LAST BATTLE: ZAMA AND THE FALL OF CARTHAGE
by Brian Todd Carey

In 202 BC At Zama in what is now Tunisia, the armies of two empires clashed. The Romans under Scipio Africanus won a bloody, decisive victory over Hannibal's Carthaginians. Scipio's victory signalled a shift in the balance of power in the ancient world. This compelling reconstruction of the battle, and of the gruelling war that led up to it, gives a fascinating insight into the Carthaginian and Roman methods of waging war, and offers a critical assessment of the contrasting qualities and leadership styles of Hannibal and Scipio, the two most celebrated commanders of their age.
