Produktinformationen ""Medieval Russian Armies 1250-1500" von Nicolle, David"
Men-at-Arms 367 Author: David Nicolle Illustrator: Angus McBride
After disastrous defeats at the hands of the Mongols in the 13th century; the Russian principalities became vassals of the Khans of the Golden Horde for more then 200 years; and at the same time the western princes faced the German crusaders of the Teutonic Order. Remarkably; Russia responded with a new surge of military vigour. Eventually; freedom from the 'Mongol yoke' coincided with a degree of unity around a powerful new state - Muscovy. This exciting chapter of history is illustrated with rare early paintings; photos; diagrams; and eight plates reconstructing the mixed influences of East and West in the appearance of Russian warriors.
