Author information

Adrian's fascination with ancient history began with a gift of toy Roman soldiers at the age of four, and continued through his Honours degree in Ancient History and Classical Archaeology at Sheffield University. Having been previously employed as a professional musician, lead caster, motorcycle courier, and fork-lift driver, Adrian currently works in isotope geoscience. In addition to reading and writing about ancient warfare, he maintains an active interest in music, dogs and all manner of games. Giuseppe Rava was born in Faenza in 1963, and took an interest in all things military from an early age. Entirely self-taught, Giuseppe has established himself as a leading military history artist, and is inspired by the works of the great military artists, such as Detaille, Meissonier, Rochling, Lady Butler, Ottenfeld and Angus McBride. He lives and works in Italy. For more on Giuseppe, please visit his website at www.g-rava.it
