In our new documented series we are going to depict the evolution of the historical armies, their tactics, structures, weapons and military systems. We decided to start with Ancient Greeks, as the evolution of their warfare seems very interesting, especially since historians agree that Greeks and the way they fought set up the dominance of the Western civilization for the next 2,5 thousand years. We start with the Mycenaean Civilization and continue with the invasion of the Sea Peoples and the Dorians into the Dark Age and then the early polis period and the Agrarian Warfare, and discuss Homer's Iliad along the way. Hopefully, you will enjoy this video.

This video is narrated by our good friend Commissar Bro. We are really grateful to him and hope that you like his narration as much as we do.
