The book ranges in time from 8000 BC in northern Iraq to the armies of the Aztecs and Incas half a millennium ago, and includes Alexander the Great's campaigns against Persia, Hannibal's conflict with Rome, Caesar's Gallic Wars, the Han Chinese defeat of the nomadic Xiongnu horsemen, and the Inca ruler Atahualpa's last stand against Pizarro.
The authors combine descriptions of military events with expert analyses and explanations of the underlying social, economic and cultural factors that shaped ancient warfare.
