Having primarily campaigned on land during the early phase of their existence, the Hospitallers fought mainly at sea from the 14th century. The military emphasis was also now on small-scale operations, rather than the all-out crusading invasion that had so often come to grief. Having conquered Rhodes, the Order fortified it and transferred there in 1309. A period of on-off warfare with the Mamluks became full-blown conflict with the Ottomans, who captured Rhodes in 1522, forcing the Hospitallers to transfer to Malta. This book, the second of two, takes a close look at the men who lived and died for the Hospitaller cause in this key period, and the significant political and economic role that the Order played within the Christian empire.

Osprey's Warrior Series of books concentrate on the service conditions, dress and equipment, motivation, training, recruitment and experiences of fighting men and women. Uniforms and equipment are shown in exploded diagrams. Featuring specially commissioned colour artworks and illustrated throughout with black and white photography, Osprey's Warrior series is an ideal reference resource for re-enactors, military history enthusiasts, model makers and wargamers.
