Great Battles of the Ancient World

"Great Battles of the Ancient World consists of 24 lectures given by Professor Garrett Fagan, focusing on warfare in the ancient Mediterranean world. The first eight lectures chart the development of warfare from prehistoric times to the glory days of the great states of the ancient Near East and Egypt. The next eight lectures cover warfare among the Greeks and their distinctive form of combat using hoplites, a type of armored infantry that fought in close formation called the phalanx. And the last eight lectures study the legions of Rome, which evolved brutally effective tactics that gave them dominion over the entire Mediterranean basin."

For example, Lecture 13 - The Athenian Expedition to Sicily.
