DOCUMENT 6

Ammianus Marcellinus, Roman historian from his history, speaking of the Goths and steppe nomads, c. 400 CE.
Sometimes when provoked, they fight; and when they go into battle, they form a solid body, and utter all kinds of terrific yells. They are very quick in their operations, of exceeding speed, and fond of surprising their enemies. With a view to this, they suddenly disperse, then reunite. . . And in one respect, you may pronounce them the most formidable of all warriors, for when at a distance they use missiles of various kinds. . . but when they are at close quarters they fight with sword, without any regard for their own safety; and often while their antagonists are warding off their blows, they entangle them with twisted cords.”
