Additional Information

Greece is a land where warfare and momentous events have often changed the course of world history. While the Minoan and Cycladic Civilizations were considered peaceful, the same cannot be said for the history that followed their era.

The peoples of Ancient Greece were either recovering from war, at war, or preparing from war. Epic battles, global conquests, city-state rivalries --- against this fiery backdrop, the Greeks generated their unprecedented contributions to world culture and humanity.

Who were the Greeks fighting and why? How was military technology developed and applied? Did a bellicose culture enable Greek citizens to develop democracy?

These absorbing questions and more are addressed by our expert historian, West Point Military History Professor Eugenia C. “Jennie” Kiesling. As we visit legendary sites, she illuminates our understanding of the complexion and complexities of the Ancient Greek Military.
