Description

The Byzantine Army was the closest the middle ages came to producing a military superpower. Built on a strong belief system emphasizing stealth, surprise, swift man oeuvre and overwhelming force, the Byzantine infantryman was trained in survival, sword, spear and archery techniques and also land and sea combat and fighting within the foulkon 'turtle' formation. Timothy Dawson, an expert in the training and techniques of the Byzantine Army, details the everyday experience of the infantryman from his recruitment, through his twice-a-day training regime to his encounters with his enemies. Full-color artwork richly illustrates their incredible warrior society and gives a real insight into how they lived.
