5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Book, Sept. 27 2006
This is a great book. It gives details on the tatics, the armour and weapons and the battles that they fought. It was a very good addition to my historical library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Information, Aug. 3 2005
This review is from: The Mamluks 1250-1517 (Paperback)
This is one book which has good information on the Mamluks and thier resulting actions and training. For a Historian like me this is very valuable since my studies are in a field which is very small and does not have that much information. A 5/5 for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best information you can get, June 23 2005
This review is from: The Age of Tamerlane (Paperback)
This is the best source of information I would recommend to anybody without spending alot of money. While I did and do have the Cambridge titles as well as orginial Turkish and Perisan manuscripts, this is one source I can give to read to the western population without going into too much detail. The Pictures as good and the history is true. A 5/5 for this One.

This review is from: Mughul India 1504-1761 (Paperback)
This is a brilliant source of information and of pictures as my field is includes this information. It is well detailed, the army deployment and pictures are excellent and overall it is a very good book. Though it is not Babaru-Nama, it is a good source of information. A 5/5 for this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very good Source of information, June 23 2005
This is a very good source of information as it gives you alot of detail without going into various documents or expensive books. The details on the pictures and weapons are excellent and that is why this is such a good book. A 5/5 for this one.

Rome's Enemies (3): Parthians and Sassanid Persians
by Peter Wilcox
Edition: Paperback
14 used & new from CDN$ 7.00

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Source of information, June 23 2005
This is one of the good sources of information without it going into a steep price tag like the Cambridge Histories [which I do own]. This is a perfect way for western readers to learn about something rather than go and learn Perisan and read the manuscripts [though I encourage you to do so]. A 5/5 for this one.

This is one source of good information that can be gotten without a large price tag on it. It gives a good detail on the weapons, armour and tatics that can be gotten in a form that is good for western readers. A 5/5 for this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Source for the Cenissaries., June 23 2005
This review is from: The Janissaries (Paperback)
This is a good source of information about thier lives and their ways as well as their units. I would recommend this to anyone interested in the period or the empire. While my field falls away from this as, I would recommend it in a heart beat just to show how they dressed and acted as well as thier units and weapons. A 5/5 for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best sources of Nomadic History, June 23 2005
This is one of the best sources of nomadic history without spending a ton of money on Herodotus's work. They pictures, arms and armour and general detail and history was a good source for this historian. A 5/5 for me.
