Soldiers and Ghosts

Professor Ted Lendon of the University of Virginia, formerly of M.I.T., has a new book out. Soldiers and Ghosts is written to be accessible to a general audience. It addresses the evolution of land warfare over the period of antiquity.

Lendon had a justifiably devoted following at the Institute. Many in Cambridge still remember him fondly.
