This isn't a subject I read a terrible amount... but I do watch a bunch of videos on it while I'm eating sandwiches and such lol


This one is more focused specifically on weapons and their use:

LGDB: But this guys specifically gets into battle tactics, formations, famous events in antiquity that changed combat and so on, and covers a wider range of topics.

Recently I was having a nerd-talk with a friend, and he commented how fantasy is often wrong when it depicts sword fighting as the primary combat tactic; how spear/lance fighting was the preferred method, while swords were mostly seen as sidearms. I guess it’s something I’d always assumed, but never gave it much thought.

Anyway, that’s how this whole historic-military-combat rabbit hole started for me. Thanks for the links.
