The very name El Cid sums up much of the special character of medieval Spanish warfare. It comes from the Arabic al sayyid, master or chieftain, and seems to have been given to Rodrigo de Vivar by his Muslim foes. But was it given in recognition of El Cid's victories against Islam in the 'Reconquista' or because this Castilian nobleman was as content to serve beside the Muslims as to fight them? The story of the Christian conquest of the Iberian peninsula which gave rise to the legend of El Cid, is here examined by David Nicolle, who outlines the history, tactics, arms and armour of the period.

Each book in the Osprey Men-At-Arms series provides a detailed account of the military uniforms, insignia, background and organisation of a single army, regiment, group or period. Military uniforms are shown in full colour artwork. These books describe in detail the armies, regiments and units that fought in all of historys most significant military engagements. Featuring full colour illustrations of men of all ranks equipped for all conditions of warfare, together with black and white photographs of contemporary artefacts, illustrations and events, books in the Osprey Men-at-Arms series are a valuable reference tool for model makers, war gamers, re-enactors and military history enthusiasts.
