Over 100 color paintings of mounted cavalry through the centuries--in the most spectacularly illustrated book on the subject ever published--highlight this tribute to 2,500 years of history's most fascinating fighting force. From the early rise of Assyrians, Persians, Carthaginians, and Romans, view the ascendency of Parthians, Goths, Byzantines, Mongols, and the Ottoman Empire, and follow it to the 20th-century triumphs of Texas Rangers, Russian Cossacks, Bengal Lancers, and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
