Armies of Islam 7th - 11th Centuries by David Nicolle  Illustrated by Angus Mcbride

50 pages  Pb  2007 UK 

Men-At Arms Series

During the Middle Ages Islam was Christian Europe's only civilised and most troublesome neighbour, the Middle Ages saw almost continual strife between these two distinct cultures. By the time the Frankish Crusaders reached the Middle East at the end of the 11th century Islam had already incorporated three major races: Arabs, Persians and Turks, each of which contributed different strengths to the armoury of Islam. This title explores the organisation, uniforms and equipment of the armies of Islam from the 7th to 11th centuries, backed by illustrations, museum photographs and eight full page colour plates by popular Osprey artist Angus McBride.

Contents
Chronology · Introduction · The First Muslim Armies · The Successor States · European Influence in al Andalus · Tactics and Styles of Combat · The Plates
