9781846034046: Byzantine Cavalryman c.900–1204 (Warrior)

Osprey's study of the Byzantine cavalrymen, who were regarded as the elite arm of the military during the Middle Byzantine period (867-1204). The cavalry executed high speed reconnaissance, agile arrow barrages and crippling blows to enemy formations. Its ranks were filled primarily through direct recruitment or hereditary service by holders of military lands, but in times of crisis irregulars would be temporarily enlisted. Few books provide any accessible study of the medieval Romaic soldier's life, and this colorful addition to the Warrior series seeks to redress this imbalance. Offering a thorough and detailed examination of their training, weaponry, dress and daily life, this book re-affirms the importance of cavalry troops in military victories of the period. Making use of original Greek source material, and featuring unpublished manuscript images, this follow-on volume to Warrior 118 Byzantine Infantryman c.900-1204 brings the world of the Byzantine cavalryman vividly to life.

About the Author:

Dr Timothy Dawson gained his PhD in Classics (Byzantine Studies) from the University of New England, New South Wales, Australia in 2003. He has lectured for many years on Byzantine, Greek and Roman armies. He is currently editor of Medieval History Magazine and is a keen reenactor, particularly of the medival European period. He operated Australia's first historical European combat school, Amyna, near Sydney from 1984 to 1987, and in 1985 published a training manual embodying techniques practiced at that time. Timothy was also known as one of Australia's finest makers of swords and other military equipment. This activity embodied and informed his research and teaching in both arms and armor and combat. Since then he has gone on to be internationally recognized academically as an expert on certain forms of arms and armor. The author lives in Leeds, UK.

Review:

“Byzantine Cavalryman c.900-1204 takes a completely different look at the subject from light horse arches to the super-heavy, armored cataphracts... Author Timothy Dawson goes into great detail about Byzantine cavalrymen fro their recruitment to their training, equipment and campaigning... Illustrator Giuseppe Rava's excellent color plates are very clear and show a great amount of detail.” ―John Burt, Toy Soldier & Model Figure
