    @Jurand of Cracow: Great find - looks like very interesting title thanks for sharing.


    @ Sarkiss: Thanks for the review. Personally, I haven't bought this book yet. It seems to me that it is not possible to properly capture all the Hellenistic armies in such a short book. After your preview I will delete it from my wishlist


    Few things for Hellenistic fans:


    Beyond Alexandria: Literature and Empire in the Seleucid World by Marijn S. Visscher. It looks like a very interesting book:

    There is a public event about reenactment and archaeology movies with a public poll. The event is from France:
    https://www.rencontres-archeologie.c...s-100-en-ligne

    One of those movies is about the Gauls during the Gallic Wars and is available with English subtitles:

    This is made by a well-known reenactment group, Les Ambiani.

    Sure, I have only The army of the Bosporan Kingdom by Mariusz Mielczarek. Recently I have been interested in the client kingdoms of Rome and their armed forces

    Here is a vital online resource for anyone doing research on the Seleukids, Parthians, Scythians, Persians, Armenians:

    The Encyclopædia Iranica is a comprehensive research tool dedicated to the study of Iranian civilization in the Middle East, the Caucasus, Central Asia, and the Indian subcontinent.

    Parthia.com has some info that can be useful for those studying Parthia, the Seleukid and later Sassanian Empires.

    Zoroastrian Heritage is a very good site which covers the rituals, temples, festivals of Zoroastrianism, as well the early history of central Asia / Chorasmia, Bactria, Sogdia, etc., where Zoroastrianism was born.

    Pourshariati's book about the decline and fall of the Sassanids is available online. PDFdrive is a legitimate site, as far as I know, and the available copy if free of viruses, but I'm not sure if it has been uploaded with the consent of the author. If you believe it's fine, you can add the link to the OP. For Farrokh's book, there's one nice (albeit a bit vitriolic) review from Lendering. Keep in mind that a few scholars replied to Lendering's review, but their arguments are not very convincing (they're basically nitpicking). They even created a slightly toxic site, dedicated specifically to denigrate Lendering. It's one of the most interesting feuds in academia, probably originated from the conflicting views about the Cyrus Cylinder between modern academia and Iranian nationalists/royalists.

    I haven't read that specific book, but I have read his work over the role of thalassocracy in Alexander's conquest. It was a bit meh, Parpas doesn't seem to have researched the topic very well and the text often gave the impression of Cypriot fanboyism. His study about the Persian gulf could be better, but I wouldn't risk buying it, to be honest.

    For the Achaemenid Empire, Achemenet is also a great site and sometimes better updated than Encylopedia Iranica. Livius is also useful for studying primary sources. It features, for example, a great list of translated ancient Persian inscriptions. What needs to be avoided at all costs is CAIS (Circle of Ancient Iranian Studies). Some of their articles are good, but others are just nationalistic rants with little basis on reality.
