1 Cotterell, Arthur Chariot - The Astounding Rise and Fall of the World's First War Machine
London Pimlico 2004 0712669426 / 9780712669429 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine Signed by Author
SIGNED BY AUTHOR to title page without dedication. A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. viii + 344 pages. First edition, first printing. Illustrated throughout. This unique book traces the rise and fall of the chariot across the Old World, from Britain to Korea, a machine which changed the face of ancient warfare. In 1274 B.C. at Kadesh in present-day Syria, where the untried Pharaoh Ramesses II was nearly defeated by the Hittites, some 5,000 chariots were deployed in battle. It is graphically recounted in Indian epics and Chinese chronicles, and Homer's Iliad tells of the attack on Troy by Greek heroes who rode in chariots. Alexander the Great faced charioteers in Northern India, while in 55 B.C. Julius Caesar was met by British chariots on a Kent beach.
