Reviews about Bronze Age Warfare (3):
Umrdana
This is a well organized, straightforward exposition. It covers the different regions of Europe in a systematic manner regarding the evidences for Bronze Age warfare; thus useful for the academic and informative for the layperson. The only problem is Osgood' s tendency, without good evidence, to head for Woo-woo Land and pacify the past. For example, Certain obvious weapons are not functional but merely symbolic. Symbolic of what? Sewing? Shellfish gathering? Carpentry? Such objects are only 'symbolic' because they were useful for war. This silliness aside, this is an interesting, well-written book.

Forget the horned helmets like the one on the cover. This uses archeological research to establish what we know about warfare in the bronze age. Going strictly by the evidence, it doesn't appear that the people of Europe and the British Isles were as violent as our 19th century ancestors thought. Osgood does a good job of separating what we know from the romantic notions.
Yramede
A fine book on the topic, though involved little in the way of testing or discussing use and efficacy of the arms and armor. Also for such a broad title the book only addresses Europe. A fine book for anyone interested in the period, but by no means should it be your only book on the subject... but it should be one of them.
