The first ever military history of the wars between Byzantium and its numerous foes - the Goths, Arabs, Slavs, Crusaders and the Ottoman Turks. Through the analysis of battles fought in different contexts and at different periods, the history of both army and empire is illustrated and brought to life in a way which traditional political histories of Byzantium rarely achieve.
