"Professor Fagan's Irish heritage gives his speech a slight and pleasant accent to American ears. His students have given high ratings to his courses in the classical world. His brisk pace will keep listeners on their toes, while his mastery of the names and places he cites makes them easy to recognize. The lectures cover armor, tactics, politics, and religion to achieve an integrated understanding of Egyptian, Persian, Greek, and Roman warfare. War in pure audio can be difficult, but Dr. Fagan makes Alexander's famous defeat of the Persians at the Granicus River and other battles easy to understand by including maps of troop movements in the abundant supplements.
