173 MAMLUK 'ASKARI 1250-1517
by Nicoole, David
New archaeological material and research underpins this extensive, detailed and beautifully illustrated account of the famous Mamluk Askars who are credited with finally defeating and expelling the Crusaders, halting the Mongol invasion of the Islamic Middle East, and facing down Tamerlane. Probably the ultimate professional soldiers of the medieval period they were supposedly recruited as adolescent slaves, though recent research has begun to undermine this oversimplified interpretation of what has been called the Mamluk phenomenon.
Contents: Introduction; Chronology; Conscription and Enlistment; Training; Appearance; Weapons and Equipment; Belief and Belonging; Conditions of Service; On Campaign; and the Aftermath of Battle.
