The empires of ancient Persia remain as mysterious today as they were to contemporary Western scholars. Although Alexander the Great's conquest of Persia is legendary, the military successes of the Achaemenid, Parthian, and Sassanian empires, along with their revolutionary military technology, tactics, and culture have been almost forgotten in the sands of the East. Containing information never before published in English, "Shadows in the Desert" offers a comprehensive history of Persia's wars with East and West which spanned over a millennium, and offers an insight into the exchange of ideas and culture that occurred during these clashes between East and West, not only military technology, but influences in the arts, medicine, religion and science.This beautifully illustrated book delves into the rich heritage of the Persians, which was spread around the world through war and conquest, and which, after the fall of the Sassanians, continued to impact upon civilizations around the world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In addition to the images and excellent maps, there are discussions of the way warfare was waged as well as the contributions of the societies in terms of arts and literature. We all owe a great deal to these ancient cultures as they have passed along much to succeeding generations. It is a book that once you start reading, will be drawn into it. It was one that I thoroughly enjoyed and I know that you will as well." --Scott Van Aken, www.modelingmadness.com (April 2009)
