Hoplite is the 15th volume in the Great Battles of History series (GBoH) of games, allowing players to recreate classic battles from the pre-Alexandrian Greco-Persian Age, the heydey of the Hoplite (heavy infantry fighting in dense formation), a period that is often considered the birth of Western Warfare, in contrast to the Persian/Eastern style, which relied on archery, light cavalry and mobility.
