Description

Warfare in Ancient Greece. The mighty armoured warriors at the heart of Greek legend were the famous Hoplites. Fighting shoulder to shoulder, armed with their long thrusting spears and colourful shields, these were the men who dominated the battlefields of the ancient world during the conflicts of the Peloponnesian Wars. In 450 BC war erupted between the two great powers of ancient Greece, the Athenians and the Spartans. By the time the war had finished, the army, navy and city of Athens would be in ruins. Featuring extraordinary reconstruction footage and the views of leading academic experts, this DVD examines the tactics and strategies of Hoplite Warfare and offers a unique insight into the battles of ancient Greece. Narrated by Bob Sessions, Special comment from Brian Blessed
