Osprey New Vanguard 132 : Ancient Greek Warship 500-322 BC

Formidable and sophisticated, triremes were the deadliest battleships of the ancient world and at the height of their success the Athenians were the dominant exponents of their devastating power. Primarily galleys designed to fight under oar power, their main weapon was a bronze-plated ram situated at the prow. This book offers a complete analysis of the most potent battleship of its time, the weapon by which Athens achieved, maintained and ultimately lost its power and prosperity. Text by Nic Fields with illustrations by Peter Bull.
