My article on hoplite combat

This is the article I wrote for Ancient Warfare magazine that spawned this blog, the issue is now out of print so I have decided to link to it. It presents a new model of Othismos and hoplite warfare which differs greatly from previous attempts at reconstruction.

You will see that most of the posts I have made here have been groundwork for this model. I will go into greater detail in future posts.

I really enjoyed your article. I am very interested in Spartan culture and its ancient military lifestlye. I believe that Sparta has much to offer to modern warrior traditions. I look forward to more articles of this nature.
