    1. I love this book and constantly go back to it.Up front, it is by no means the most exhaustive, most detailed or most brilliantly illustrated work. But it is the most accessible and comprehensive introduction to the subject matter you can find. Ancient and Medieval Siege Weapons is a MUST BUY book for your collection, especially if you want the most for your money. This book gives exactly what it promises; it tells you everything you want and need to know about siege weapons and tactics. The writ [...]


    2. This starts with a description about the different ancient and medieval countries that are going to be explored in the book.The countries mentioned are ancient Greece,Egypt,Persia and Rome among others.It gives background info on what the different cultures knew of siege warfare and also sites examples of when these methods were used.It then moves along to discuss the siege weapons giving very detailed descriptions of each along with drawings.Once again it discusses the different situations in w [...]


    3. Great book, clearly well researched. The wording was concise enough to be easily understood, yet lacking no information. the collection and layout of information is easily read and the illustrations are excellent and work with the text excellently. A book I will be using as reference in the future for sure.


    4. Delivers the goods as advertised. Ancient warfare was as brutal as you think it would be.

    5. An interesting read, though it might have been more useful if the chapters were flipped and the types of medieval weapons described first, and then how the ancients used them. Felt like I was reading backwards, so it was a bit slow and repetitive once I hit the specific chapters and breakdowns. Lots of info, easy and interesting to read. Basically touched on the various types of heavy weaponry.
