Byzantine Armies 886-1118 (Men-at-Arms, Volume 89) by Ian Heath

By Ian Heath

The Byzantines had a remarkably refined method of politics and armed forces method. in contrast to such a lot in their contemporaries, they learnt very early of their historical past that profitable a conflict didn't inevitably win a conflict, they usually usually obtained off their enemies with treaties and bribes instead of squander males and matériel in almost certainly fruitless campaigns. The Byzantine military of the tenth and early eleventh centuries, on the top of its energy and potency, was once the best-organised, best-trained, best-equipped and highest-paid within the identified global. This most suitable publication by means of Ian Heath examines the Byzantine Armies from 886-1118, together with the lusty, hard-fighting, hard-drinking 'barbarian' Varangian guard.
