Description from the publisher:

Some historians divide history into periods dominated by one civilization. Greece, Rome, India, China, Western Europe and North America have all had their moment in the sun, but from the 8th to 11th centuries the Islamic world led the way. With numerous illustrations and photographs, including eight attractive full page color plates by Graham Turner, this worthy addition to Osprey's Men-at-Arms series by David Nicolle examines the recruitment, organization, weaponry, costume and uniforms of the armies of the Caliphates from 862-1098.
