    I have it with me and I am reading it right now. It's pretty good considering the lack of information on the subject. It's a 100 page book plus 30+ with archeological drawings and photos. It sums up the army of the bosporan kingdom very well, in my opinion. I bought it from wwwhttp://www.archeobooks.com

    like how focused this book appears to be and hope it is as in-depth as it seems. would be great to see more of such studies that offer a sharp focus on a particular event/war, rather than trying to cover too much ground and presenting broad familiar overviews.

    It will be great to see more books focused on particular event/war - for this reason I really admire Graingerīs book The Roman War of Antiochos the Great. I only missed better analysis of battles, but we have Seleucid army by Bar-Kochva for this. So I hope this book will have decent analysis of the battles.

    For those interested in the Ptolemaic campaign, this might be interesting - 17 pages from an acclaimed author (plus 30 pages footnotes and bibliography ;-):

    For anyone interested in Celtic religion and especially learning more about our CelticDruid trait system, here's a 112 year old book on the subject(starting in Ch. 6 "The Celtic Priesthood"). It's very old, but it contains many accounts of classical writers' views on the druids(and Celtic religion) and contains a good bit of the info used to concept these traits(even though the book itself wasn't directly used for trait concepting).

    I've been reading about naval warfare in the Classical, Hellenistic and Roman periods, specifically John R Hale's Lords of the Sea and John D Grainger's Hellenistic and Roman Naval Wars. The former is much better on the tactical and operational level (though focused on the Classical era), the latter on strategy and foreign policy implications of naval power. Guess what element of the mod is getting an overhaul for 2.3a?

    Just started Christopher Matthew's Storm of Spears, which is a work of experimental archaeology and reconstruction on the hoplite, written by a former infantryman. Instead of just trying to interpret artwork and text, he's been building and using the gear of the hoplite and getting people together to try to fight in phalanxes.

    i have Matthew's book but havent gotten around to reading it yet. any good? on a last chapter of Grainger's Alexander the Great Failure. Grainger isnt a military historian per se imho, but if you're into geopolitics, his is definitely your man. have his Rome Parthia and India to read next and expecting Kings and Kingship in the Hellenistic World 350-30 BC to be delivered very soon. got several of his books, actually. he doesnt have the most engaging or exciting writing style and tends to leave out juicy details but his knowledge is very impressive and he often offers original and interesting perspectives. wish i could find his Roman War of Antiochos the Great at a reasonable price.

    He's somewhat controversial in some of his rather sweeping assertions; I'm not entirely convinced that all the artistic depictions of overarm spear use are actually javelins, and the hoplite spear was only ever used in a braced, underarm position or reversed version of the same. He seems to completely ignore the existence of genuinely dual-use spears that could be thrown as well as fought in melee with, like the longche. That said, his approach is a good deal more empirical, especially in actually using the things, than much of what has come to date.

    I've got Grainger's book on my Kindle but haven't gotten around to reading it yet. His focus does seem to be more geopolitical than tactical from my reading of his naval book, but when you've got the likes of Hale to flesh out that level out it's fine.

    Not sure if this is exactly right for here, but I was wondering if Sarkiss might be add a single entry at the beginning with a bibliography of the music in EBII. Every time I see an artist listed on the loading screen I try to jot down the name and ablum info as quickly as I can, but I usually get lost in reading the historical info and forget. It would be cool for those great musicians to be more easily locatable, so that we can get their music!

    the themes for EB were composed by Morgan Casey and Nick Wylie. most if not all of these are still in afaik. both composers used to have their own websites if you'd like to look for more from them. there are other tracks mixed in, i.e. Eastern one with Armenian duduk in it created by The Persian Cataphract, iirc. there are more sound tracks too iirc, i want to say Brennus was getting some in? other TMs may be able to elaborate.

    Thank you very much!

    1) For anyone interested, I found another book about pergamon, "A History of Pergamum. Beyond Hellenistic Kingship", by Richard Evans . I don't know if it's good or not, I just found it...may be someone posted it previously. Do you know if it's any good? If it is, it could help expand the scarse information about the subject.

    2) Again, do you know the source of this image?

    How do you find the sources? Did you already read the book or is it that you are better googling than I am?

    1. that mostly covers Roman period, it seems, as author is a specialist on Roman history (also looking at the list of the content).

    2. this image can be found in Rome and Her Enemies: an Empire Created and Destroyed by War, ed. Jane Penrose (Osprey Publishing, 2005), p. 220
    i own the book. though this image is also included in other Osprey publications that discuss the Parthians.
