Phalanx: A formation of closely spaced soldiers or police - any crowd in close formation. Alexander the Great made extensive tactical use of phalanxes - infantry lines with overlapping shields. His father, Phillip of Macedonia, invented this tactic.
With archers marching ahead of the phalanxes and walls of lances hiding the cavalry, our square formations could transform themselves into curved lines at any moment.
