The Armies of Islam, 7th-11th Centuries, Paperback Book

The Armies of Islam, 7th-11th Centuries Paperback

Illustrated by Angus McBride

Part of the Men-at-Arms series


During the Middle Ages, Islam was Christian Europe's only civilized and most troublesome neighbor.

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 organization, uniforms and equipment of the armies of Islam from the 7th to 11th centuries, backed by illustrations, museum photographs and eight full page color plates by popular Osprey artist Angus McBride.
