For wargamers or those simply fascinated by historical warfare, Lost Battles offers some amazing perspectives on ancient war reconstruction. Using his experience with conflict simulation, Philip Sabin draws together ancient evidence and modern scholarship to construct a generic, grand, tactical model of 36 individual battles, uniting a mathematical framework with human decisions. Readers will be able to re-create fighting engagements, tweak the scenarios to fit their own ideas, and try out different tactics from those used historically! This book includes access to a downloadable computer simulation where the reader can view the author's simulations as well create their own. 298 pages, softcover.
