Ancient Greek Warship : 500-322 BC Paperback
by Nic Fields
Illustrated by Peter Bull
Part of the New Vanguard series
Formidable and sophisticated, triremes were the deadliest battleships of the ancient world and at the height of their success the Athenians were the dominant exponents of their devastating power.
Primarily long ships designed to fight under oar power, their main weapon was a bronze-plated ram situated at the prow.
This book offers a complete analysis of the most potent battleship of its time; the weapon by which Athens achieved, maintained, and ultimately lost its power and prosperity.
