This two-volume publication explores the key factors determining the course and outcome of war in Late Antiquity. Volume 8.1 includes a detailed review of strategic and tactical issues and eight comprehensive bibliographic essays, which provide an overview of the literature. In Volume 8.2, thematic papers examine strategy and intelligence, fortifications and siege warfare, weaponry and equipment, literary sources and topography, and civil war, while papers focused on particular geographic regions home in on war and warfare in the West Roman Empire in the 4th and 5th centuries, and the Balkans and the Eastern frontier in the 4th to 7th centuries AD.Contributors are Susannah Belcher, Neil Christie, Ian Colvin, John Conyard, Jon Coulston, Jim Crow, Florin Curta, Hugh Elton, James Howard-Johnston, Jordi Galbany, Jordi Gu�rdia, John Haldon, Michel Kazanski, Maria Kouroumali, Michael Kulikowski, Christopher Lillington-Martin, Marta Maragall, Oriol Mercadal, Jordi Nadal, Oriol Olesti, Alexander Sarantis, Conor Whately, Michael Whitby and John Wilkes.Table of ContentsVOLUME 8.1Acknowledgements ... ixList of Contributors ... xiForeword ... xviiAlexander Sarantis and Neil ChristieWaging War in Late Antiquity ... 1Alexander SarantisBibliographic EssaysWar in Late Antiquity: Secondary Works, Literary Sources and .M aterial Evidence ... 101Conor WhatelyMilitary Equipment and Weaponry: A Bibliographic Essay ... 153Alexander SarantisTactics: A Bibliographic Essay ... 177Alexander SarantisOrganisation and Life in the Late Roman Military: A Bibliographic Essay ... 209Conor WhatelyStrategy, Diplomacy and Frontiers: A Bibliographic Essay ... 239Conor WhatelyFortifications in the West: A Bibliographic Essay ... 255Alexander Sarantis with Neil ChristieFortifications in Africa: A Bibliography Essay ... 297Alexander SarantisFortifications in the East: A Bibliographic Essay ... 317Alexander SarantisVOLUME 8.2Strategy and IntelligenceInformation and War: Some Comments on Defensive Strategy and Information in the Middle Byzantine Period (ca.
