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.

Review:

‘The battle narratives flow nicely, both victories and defeats for East Rome, and most are illustrated with comprehensible battle plans... compelling.’ -- History Today

‘The maps and battleplans are excellent... comprehensive... the analysis of battles is the best I have yet read... interesting and original... excellent.’ -- Osprey Military Journal

‘readably deals with the Eastern Empire from Justinian I’s reconquest in the mid-sixth century to its military emasculation by 1204.’ -- BBC History Magazine
