About the Author

Paul Johstono gained his PhD from Duke University, North Carolina, USA, with a thesis on Hellenistic military institutions. He is an Associate Professor of Military History and Security Studies at the Air Command & Staff College, Maxwell Air Force Base, where he designs and teaches leadership and ethics curriculum. He was previously Associate Professor for History of Warfare and Leadership Studies at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina. He was formerly lead project historian for the video game team, Europa Barbarorum. He has published numerous articles and book chapters on Hellenistic military history, Ptolemaic history, and ancient historiography, but this is his first monograph. He regularly speaks on ancient warfare, leadership, and strategy. He resides in Wetumpka, Alabama, USA, with his wife and three children.


"A seminal and outstanding contribution to personal, professional, community, and academic library Egyptian Military History collections and supplemental curriculum studies lists..."-- "Midwest Book Review"
"Johstono's glimpses into second-century developments in his conclusion makes one hope a second volume is in the works. In any case, The Army of Ptolemaic Egypt, 323 to 204 BC makes a substantial contribution to our understanding of the Ptolemaic state apparatus and Hellenistic warfare more broadly."-- "Michigan War Studies Review"
"Overall, Johstono's work provides a good study of the Ptolemaic army and its relation to the Ptolemaic state, asks good, pointed questions about the ethnicity of the various troops that made up the Ptolemaic force, and challenges the narrative of decadence and decline in the Egyptian army."-- "H-War"
