Chariot: From Chariot to Tank, the Astounding Rise and Fall of the World’s First War Machine
Arthur Cotterell (au)
The chariot changed the face of ancient warfare. First in Mesopotamia, then in Asia Minor & Egypt, charioteers came to dominate the battlefield, in Asia & the British Isles as well. This book traces the rise & fall of the chariot across the Old World -- through Ireland, Rome, Greece, Mesopotamia, Egypt, India, & China -- its influence on modern mechanized warfare, & its resonance in the popular imagination, from ancient art & lit. to Hollywood films. Offers descriptions of the military confrontations in which the deployment of chariots heavily influenced the outcome of battles & changed the fates of countries & empires. Depicts the chariot’s influence in warfare, as a religious symbol, in sport, lit., & art through the ages, including films. 100 illus.
