More ancient history please!

By Nathaniel Eatwell

I love your magazine!

Over the past few years my interest in all things military has grown and every aspect is covered in your magazine: History, strategy, leadership, games, reviews about games what more could you ask for?

I only have one suggestion and that is maybe you could include more ancient stuff for example maybe have an interactive battle that involves the Roman army, or talk about the "special" units that each country had (i.e., praetorians, berserks, Spartan hoplites, elephants) and how they were used, you could talk about the weapons used and maybe give instructions on how to build a catapult.

Like I said it’s just a suggestion, either way ACG is awesome and helped me in many ways.

Thank you for your comments.  ACG will undoubtedly feature more from the ancient world in future issues, but in case you missed it, issue 2 (May 2004) did carry a feature on the Hoplites of Ancient Greece.
