Dating from the time of the Emperor Hadrian, Aelian's Tactics draws on earlier works to create a fascinating picture of warfare during the Hellenistic period. In Arabic and Latin translations the work continued to be used for many centuries as a practical manual, right up to the English Civil War. Matthew provides the fullest edition available of the Greek text, with a new facing translation, illustrations of the formations described and explanatory notes.
