Mercenaries in the Classical World


A study of the developing role of mercenary troops in the armies of Greece and Persia, as well as the Greek city states in Sicily and Magna Grecia. Stephen English first explores methods, rates and regularity of payment, as well as the parallel place of plunder, before setting out a chronological discussion of the employment and deployment of mercenaries from the archaic age to the death of Alexander the Great, alongside the overall growing professionalisation of warfare.
