Arrows Against Steel, the History of the Bow and How It Forever Changed Warfare, is the definitive study of the historical development of military tactics and strategies resulting from the introduction, on the battlefield, of the first effective remotely launched guided missile - the bow and arrow. Hurley, a retired military officer and acknowledged historian, artfully analyzes significant historical battles and describes the successes and failures of combatant's strategies when armed with, or facing out-of-reach marksmen, Few realize that the bow and arrow has been the most devastating killer of men in history - greater than the machine gun, the cannon, and even the atomic bomb. Its use throughout history revolutionized warfare and taught the importance of a unified strategy, battle discipline, and mobility. As a superior weapon with a deadly range, it triumphed over direct conventional confrontational tactics and was the genesis of modern offensive military strategies such as: the creation of fear and terror in enemy military and civilian populations from the continuous apprehension of an unheralded attack by weapons with long-range deadly capability; the use of rapidly deployed and highly mobile powerful forces; the destruction of enemy forces in the field rather than by the attack of strongholds; the ability to attack strongholds from remote and safe positions; the use of fluid military feints to motivate an enemy to concentrate force at one or more specific points, weakening other parts of a defensive line; and the strategic importance of an effective and safe supply source rather than reliance on in-field foraging.
