The Sassanians ruled the last great imperial Empire of Persia before the Arab conquests of the 7th century. Romes only equal in the classical world, the Sassanian Empire had an enormous impact on the development of architecture, mythology, arts, music, military tactics and technology. Within the Sassanian military, the cavalry was the most influential element, and Sassanian cavalry tactics were adopted by the Romans, Arabs, and Turks. Their cavalry systems of weaponry, battle tactics, Tamgas, Medallions, court customs, and costumes influenced Romano-Byzantine and medieval European culture, and this book allows the reader to see how a little-studied eastern power affected the development of cavalry traditions in the western world.

Each book in the Elite series focuses on a single army or elite unit, a military tactic or a group of famous commanders. Military uniforms, insignia and equipment are shown in full colour artwork. Featuring full specially commissioned colour artworks of typical military uniforms and equipment, together with organisational diagrams and a wealth of black and white photography, books in Ospreys Elite series provide a valuable resource for history enthusiasts, model makers, re-enactors, and wargamers.
