Fighting Techniques of the Oriental World: Equipment, Combat Skills, and Tactics

Be the first to review this product

Divided into five sections, the text examines the individual components of the oriental army, the footsoldier and the mounted soldier, the equipment they wore an used, and how they fought together as a unit. Fighting Techniques of the Oriental World describes why certain types of units-such as the cavalry horse archer, were more effective than others, and why the heavy cavalry of the type dominant in Western Europe never became a feature of Asian armies. The third section discusses how these units were used together on the battlefield, and the importance of a general correctly disposing his troops before the battle began. The fourth part of the book looks at the specialist techniques and equipment developed for seige warfare-a common event in this era of fortification. Finally, the last section covers naval warfare, from the ships in which the men fought to the weapons they carried and the naval battles of the period.
