The Fighting Man is a full-scale examination of war as it has been fought through the ages by its most fundamental unit — the soldier. It is a studied evaluation of the practical means by which certain soldiers have obtained advantages over their enemies. Beginning with the ancient Egyptians, Assyrians, and Persians, the author describes in detail the precise nature of the warrior; his basic weapons; the quality of his leaders; and the exact historical circumstances.
