Phalanx warfare: Closing of the ranks
picture #10 seems quite dangerous during thrusting to the guy in third row.. or guy next to him.. practically, it means guys that are thrusting should never thrust with arm at the height of own face, otherwise there is a chance sauroter might hit own men..

If anything, i would expect third row to keep some distance from first two rows, as he can nor reach anybody, therefore he doesnt have to be so close anyway... and distance would give him protection from those sauroters..

 yes, you can have arm higher, but you cant have it like that the whole battle.. its something you might quickly forget in the heat of battle and become dangerous to own men..
