Mamluk 'Askari 1250-1517. Book by David Nocolle; illustrated by Peter Dennis. Osprey Warrior 173. New archaeological material and research underpins this extensive, detailed and beautifully illustrated account of the famous Mamlūk 'Askarīs who are credited with finally defeating and expelling the Crusaders, halting the Mongol invasion of the Islamic Middle East, and facing down Tamerlane. Probably the ultimate professional soldiers of the medieval period they were supposedly recruited as adolescent slaves, though recent research has begun to undermine this oversimplified interpretation of what has been called the Mamluk phenomenon. 64 pages.
