Dictionary of Ancient & Medieval Warfare. DESCRIPTION: Softcover: 357 pages. Publisher: Stackpole Books; (2001). ISBN: 081172610X. Over 2,500 entries covering 3,500 years of military history. Worldwide in scope, with hundreds of entries of Japan and China. Expert authors writing on their specialty subjects. Beginning with the Assyrians and Hittites and continuing through history until the Condotierri of Florence, “The Dictionary of Ancient and Medieval Warfare” is the only book of its kind. It is a comprehensive guide to the battles, commanders, tactics, formations, fortifications, and weapons of war in Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, India, China, and Japan from ancient times to the 16th century. More than 2,500 entries, written by military specialists, cover all aspects of warfare, from the emergence of the earliest walled cities of the ancient Near East up to the European discovery of the New World. General editor Matthew Bennett, of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, is also joint author of the Cambridge Atlas of Medieval Warfare, Agincourt, and numerous articles on military history. CONDITION: NEW. Unblemished EXCEPT for the normal mild edge and corner shelfwear to the covers expected in a new book caused by the book being shelved. HOWEVER there is also a small, round stain/glue residue spot (probably from the publisher/bindery) BOTH on the top and fore edge surfaces of the close page edges (visible only when book is closed, not to individual pages, only to the mass of closed page edges). Minimal wear, really only superficial cosmetic blemishes quite consistent with new stock from an open-shelf book store (such as Barnes & Noble, for instance) wherein patrons are permitted to browse open stock, and so otherwise "new" books often show a little handling wear. Pages are pristine; clean, crisp, unmarked, tightly bound, unambiguously unread. PLEASE SEE IMAGES BELOW FOR SAMPLE PAGES FROM INSIDE OF BOOK.

PUBLISHER REVIEW: REVIEW: A comprehensive guide to the battles and wars, commanders, tactics, formations, fortifications and weapons of war in Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, India, China and Japan, from the beginning of history to the 16th century. Over 2500 entries, written by expert military historical specialists, cover all aspects of warfare from the emergence of the earliest walled cities on the Ancient Near East up to the European discovery of the New World. PROFESSIONAL REVIEW: REVIEW: A dictionary of terms, people, battles and arms and armor, covering 3500 years from ancient Sumer to the 16th century. The Dictionary is unique, the only work to cover 3,500 years of military history. Expert authors writing in their specialty have created the most comprehensive and accessible reference work ever produced on this subject. READER REVIEWS: REVIEW: A side-effect of many hours spent playing "Age of Empires/Kings" is, in my case, an interest in ancient and medieval warfare. This book then was an obvious choice for further reading. I bought it along with "The Cambridge Illustrated History of Warfare" and as I read that book, I referred to this dictionary for further information or definitions. This dictionary is easy to understand and any reference to something that has it's own entry is marked, indicating you can read more about it. Typically, entries consist of a couple of paragraphs in a column but key subjects (the Battle of Hastings, Hannibal the Great etc.) are highlighted and are explained more fully. I would definitely recommend it. REVIEW: Well-presented dictionary, essential reference for any enthusiast of ancient and/or medieval warfare and military history. I always ship books Media Mail in a padded mailer. This book is shipped FOR FREE via USPS INSURED media mail (“book rate”). All domestic shipments and most international shipments will include free USPS Delivery Confirmation (you might be able to update the status of your shipment on-line at the USPS Web Site and free insurance coverage). A small percentage of international shipments may require an additional fee for tracking and/or delivery confirmation. If you are concerned about a little wear and tear to the book in transit, I would suggest a boxed shipment - it is an extra $1.00. Whether via padded mailer or box, we will give discounts for multiple purchases. International orders are welcome, but shipping costs are substantially higher. Most international orders cost an additional $12.99 to $33.99 for an insuredshipment in a heavily padded mailer, and typically includes some form of rudimentary tracking and/or delivery confirmation (though for some countries, this is only available at additional cost). There is also a discount program which can cut postage costs by 50% to 75% if you’re buying about half-a-dozen books or more (5 kilos+). Rates and available services vary a bit from country to country. You can email or message me for a shipping cost quote, but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow, and if it turns out the rate is too high for your pocketbook, we will cancel the sale at your request. ADDITIONAL PURCHASES do receive a VERY LARGE discount, typically about $5 per book (for each additional book after the first) so as to reward you for the economies of combined shipping/insurance costs. Your purchase will ordinarily be shipped within 48 hours of payment. We package as well as anyone in the business, with lots of protective padding and containers. All of our shipments are sent via insured mail so as to comply with PayPal requirements. We do NOT recommend uninsured shipments, and expressly disclaim any responsibility for the loss of an uninsured shipment. Unfortunately the contents of parcels are easily “lost” or misdelivered by postal employees – even in the USA. That’s why all of our domestic shipments (and most international) shipments include a USPS delivery confirmation tag; or are trackable or traceable, and all shipments (international and domestic) are insured. We do offer U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail, Registered Mail, and Express Mail for both international and domestic shipments, as well United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (Fed-Ex). Please ask for a rate quotation. We will accept whatever payment method you are most comfortable with. If upon receipt of the item you are disappointed for any reason whatever, I offer a no questions asked return policy. Send it back, I will give you a complete refund of the purchase price (less our original shipping costs). Most of the items I offer come from the collection of a family friend who was active in the field of Archaeology for over forty years. However many of the items also come from purchases I make in Eastern Europe, India, and from the Levant (Eastern Mediterranean/Near East) from various institutions and dealers. Though I have always had an interest in archaeology, my own academic background was in sociology and cultural anthropology. After my retirement however, I found myself drawn to archaeology as well. Aside from my own personal collection, I have made extensive and frequent additions of my own via purchases on Ebay (of course), as well as many purchases from both dealers and institutions throughout the world – but especially in the Near East and in Eastern Europe. I spend over half of my year out of the United States, and have spent much of my life either in India or Eastern Europe. In fact much of what we generate on Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay goes to support The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as some other worthy institutions in Europe connected with Anthropology and Archaeology. I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $2 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email.
