« back to classes page
While the nature of warfare has not changed, the tools of this bloody profession have evolved throughout the millennia. See the European battlefields through the eyes of the Greeks, the Romans, Medieval knights, and Napoleon. Study battles whose names echo throughout the ages such as Thermopylae, Cannae, Hastings, and Waterloo. We'll look into the evolution of strategy, equipment, and generalship throughout the ages. We'll also discuss what was the cause of victory or defeat by entering the minds of Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, William the Conqueror, and Napoleon Bonaparte.
