I've been interested in chariot warfare in the ancient world ever since reading Robert Drews "End of the Bronze Age" some 20 years ago. This book seemed like it would address the use of chariots and their replacement by cavalry as the bronze age waned. It sort of does, but in such a meandering, disjointed and repetitive way as to make this a book to go into the charity give-away pile. The author knows his stuff, but conveys that knowledge so awkwardly it makes for a frustrating read.
