 The Phalanx in Battle - Colonel Dave Grossman, Author
The Greek phalanx required a high degree of training and organization, but starting around the 4th century B.C., the Greek city-states were able to use it to negate the impact of the chariot in battle.
These aspects of the phalanx combined with the later Greek mastery of horseback riding (albeit absent stirrups) in order to approach an enemy from vulnerable flanks and to exploit pursuits permitted the Greek to conquer a vast portion of the world.
The Greeks were defeated by the Romans, but the inherent simplicity of the phalanx combined with its psychological fundamentals were so powerful that after the fall of the Roman Empire the phalanx again became ascendant, with the Swiss achieving the epitome of perfection of the phalanx in the Middle Ages and early Renaissance.
