Sieges played a central role in the many conflicts of the Ancient World and many famous generals, including Alexander the Great, Hannibal, Julius Caesar and Trajan, successfully used siegecraft to gain their objectives. This title explores the range of techniques and tactics which developed during the period, including crossing, penetrating and tunnelling through defences; starvation by blockade; and gaining access by deception. Describing the various techniques used, the author tracks the developments in siegecraft in the Roman world from 100 BC to AD 378.

A glimpse at more than five centuries of siege warfare 28. März 2013
Von JPS - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This must have been a rather difficult Osprey title to write for the author, especially given that siege warfare is, if I remember correctly, his original area of expertise. The topic of Roman siege warfare could have been covered in ten times as many pages and, even then, I am not sure that it would have been dealt with comprehensively. My point here is not to criticise the author who has being given the rather impossible task to present more than five centuries of siege warfare in some 64 pages. Rather, it is to show that, despite being given this "mission impossible", he has managed to come up with something valuable, even if necessarily superficial.

Accordingly, this little book is a collection of vignettes which, although short, manage nevertheless to convey an idea of Roman engineering and siege skills, and how relentless and sophisticated these skills were. Another point is to show that these skills and Roman superiority in this respect were maintained almost to the very end in the West, and way beyond the 5th century in the Eastern part of the Roman Empire. While the Germanic armies were not as inept at siege warfare as many may still believe, the book also shows that the Sassanid Persians were the only ones who were really in a position to compete, once the last large Hellenistic monarchy (The Pontic Kingdom of Mithridates) had been defeated.

Some of the vignettes are allegedly better than others, or perhaps should I simply say that I preferred some, largely because I knew very little about the specifics of the sieges that they were summarizing (such as Numantia).

There are however a number of sieges which I wanted to learn much more about, such as the sieges of the Italian wars or those of Hatra. More generally, I was a bit surprised, and perhaps even a bit disappointed, to find out that there is comparatively little on the third century (with the notable exception of the siege of Doura-Europos) and even less on the fourth century.

Although there a other Osprey titles that complement this one to some extent, I very much hope that this author might, in the near future, have the opportunity to write a more substantial book, perhaps in the Pen & Sword collection, on the same topic.

This would be particularly valuable, especially since, as he points out perfectly correctly, there are few general discussion books on Roman siege warfare, and, among those, none, to my knowledge at least, seem to have much to say about siege warfare after 100 AD.

Osprey Elite #126 Siege Warfare in the Roman World 3. Juni 2013
Von Doug Welch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Title says it all. This is a crash course into innovations and advancements in siege warfare in the Roman Era from the triumph of the Roman Republic to the defeat at Adrianople. As usual with the Osprey books there is good use of primary resources combined with archeological evidence and recreations of equipment. Big sections include the use of seaborne siege machines by Mithridates in his bid to overthrow Roman power in the Late Republic, the many sieges of the Late Republic. Caesar's sieges from his own writings examined in detail, the sieges of the Jewish War and the amazing archeological finds at Dura Europos, which tell a chilling tale of tunnel/mine warfare with an early use of chemical weapons in Syria!
I was a little disappointed that the Civil Wars of the late 2nd century and the Severan Invasion of Parthia got scant coverage, but there is little about them in the primary literature.
Adam Hook, a legacy Osprey illustrator does a great job of reproducing epic small-scale scenes using the best evidence as to how these sieges occurred. The photographs include modern reenactments and reconstructions as well as some archeological finds, aerial site photos, maps and diagrams. A reader with a keen interest in getting up to speed on the technology and operational experience of siege warfare in this period will finish this book satisfied with the knowledge and degree of insight it would provide. I would also suggest the same reader get Osprey New Vanguard 78 and 89, Greek and Roman Siege Machinery 399 BC-AD 363 (New Vanguard) andGreek and Roman Artillery 399 BC-AD 363 (New Vanguard)

A very good historical piece. Well illustrated and accurate, a must for the serious Roman Re-Enactor, or those who enjoy Roman history. Very good for young adults.

After reading this book, you will see why the Romans were masters of this type of warfare. Better to surrender than to be taken by assault.
