Archaeology, reconstructions and descriptions 26. Juni 2013
Von JPS - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This Osprey publication may seem a bit unusual, because it largely lacks the historical context that can be found in most other volumes of the series. A fairer assessment would be to recognize the choice that the authors have deliberately made to concentrate on archaeological findings, to describe these and to use them as the basis for their reconstructions. To a large extent, their alternatives were limited simply because there were no primary written sources that they could make use of.

This is not to say that there is no discussion of the origins of the various waves of "Indo-Europeans", or the Cretans, for instance. Only that it is kept to a minimum with the authors, for instance, also clearly making the point that the existence of the "Minoan sea power" is nothing more than a theory dating back to Evans, even if it is a plausible and logical one, as they also show. Also interesting is the explanation given for the collapse of Minoan power. Again, this is a theory, to the extent that we do not know "know" for sure in the absence of written sources, but it is a rather plausible one. One last important point is that by the time of the "Trojan War" (assuming, again, that it really took place as indicated by Homer), Crete was divided into Achaean principalities with the Achaeans having conquered the island and ruling it for a couple of centuries

The main (and high!) value of this book lies in its descriptions centred on the various findings of pieces of arms and armour, on one hand, and the rather gorgeous reconstructions through the plates. At times, the descriptions of assorted arms and armour may read as some museum catalogue but with the added advantage that they are a selection from findings all over Greece and the Aegean. They are also superbly illustrated by sets of pictures and drawings.

Then there are the colour plates themselves which, when superb as they are here, are one of the main attractions of every Osprey volume. I was particularly impressed by the one of page 57 titled "the Achaean conquest of Knossos, 1430 BC" with the characters "feeling" so real that I had the impression that they were about to leap of the page! More generally, there is a rather good interaction between the plates, the pictures and drawings and the main text.

I also had two relatively minor points to raise - I cannot call them "issues". One was about the bibliography, where the authors referenced multiple and rather specialized titles but did not seem to recommend any book that could provide more context about the period. For instance, I was surprised not to find a reference to Oliver Dickinson's "The Aegean Bronze Age", although another of his works is cited. Maybe space constraints obliged the authors to make some hard choices and leave that one (and a few others perhaps) out. Another little quibble is a tendency to write about the various periods and using the rather specialised and hermetic acronyms (such as LH, LM etc...) without always providing the corresponding dates. The non-specialist reader is then obliged to "jump back and forth" at times to see what period is being covered exactly.

Anyway, these were quibbles more than anything else and the title was worth a solid four stars for me.

An excellent succinct overview of the subject making use of the latest archaeological evidence 20. Juli 2013
Von Yoda - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
First and foremost, any review of this book would have to begin with a quick discussion of the Osprey "Warrior" series format, of which it is part of. These books are relatively short, being only 48 pages in length (about a third of which consists of illustration). Hence if one is looking for an in-depth tome on the subject this is not the book to pick up. It can only serve, due to the limits of the format, as a succinct overview. A second point that needs to be made is that the author, Dr. Raffaele D'Amato, is extremely knowledgeable regarding the subject. He received his PhD in Roman-Byzantine studies, is the curator of the World Museum of Man and has written extensively on related topics (i.e., Osprey's "Bronze Age Greek Warriors 1600-11 BC"). This knowledge permeates the entire book.

Considering the limits of the format, the question that needs to be asked is how well does the book cover the subject? The answer is surprisingly well. This is so for a number of reasons. The most important, by far, is that includes the most up-to-date research on the subject. This research is nearly all in the form of archaeological evidence. The book is also richly illustrated and the reader obtains a very good idea of how, based on the archaeological evidence, these warriors dressed and what type of weapons they used during this period (and how the weapons and dress developed over the period). This is the book's strength. The book also does a very good job at examining the ethnological movements of peoples throughout this region during the period albeit it does lack maps that would have been a great benefit in this respect.

Where the book is weak, however, is its coverage of the military organizational structures of these societies, tactics and strategies? However, as even the author points out, these are not known and the current academic material covering them is more hypothesis and speculation than anything based on hard evidence, whether it is hard archaeological evidence or the mythology or literature of the time.

All and all a very good succinct very up-to-date overview of the subject.

Pelasgians and Minoans 2. September 2013
Von Duane R. Wirdel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Finally someone has tackled the dodgy question of weapons, armor, ships and tactics in the pre-Hellenic Aegean. The mainland, Crete and the Cyclades are all covered in this wonderful book. While some of the inferences were come to inductively, I feel no doubt that they are on the mark.

Good review of early Aegean warriors--although of necessity sketchy 8. September 2013
Von Steven A. Peterson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This brief work (60 pages of text) is a part of the Osprey "Warrior" series. The volume covers Aegean warriors from 5000 to 1450 BC. It covers a series of civilizations--Crete, Cyprus, Cyclades, and mainland Greece. There are also occasional references to Troy.

The book does an estimable job of making sense of sketchy data. The societies studies are far enough in the past that the evidence available is not easy to make full sense of. By the way, page 11 has a useful chronology that helps place the material into historical context.

The book explores, even with incomplete information, issues such as military organization, clothing, weapons and armor, fortifications, naval power, the life of a warrior, and strategy and tactics of warfare.

Warfare is covered in just two pages, suggesting how little we can be confident of.

The book has many diagrams and photos of relevant artifacts that help give a more visual sense of the time.

All in all, a good work in this series. . . .

I was looking for information regarding th Bronze Age Mediterranean military capabilities and this helped to flesh out the period for me.
