"'A highly innovative study, presenting a new way of understanding what happened in the great battles of the ancient world.' Adrian Goldsworthy 'Sabin offers a brilliant reconstruction of ancient Greek and Roman battle.... There are new insights both into specific battle and into the relative importance of moral and material factors. Lost Battles is required reading for anyone interested in ancient warfare.'
