Warfare in Late Byzantium, 12041453. By. Savvas Kyriakidis. Photo by Savvas Kyriakidis This book is printed on acid-free paper. On the cover: A View of the walls of Nicaea (Iznik). The reliance on narrative histories to reconstruct the military history of the later Byzantine empire means that certain constraints should be admitted.

This article examines the descriptions of military operations that can be found in the Histories of the fourteenth-century Byzantine emperor John VI Kantakouzenos (1347–1354). Kantakouzenos participated in almost all the military operations he describes. However, this does not mean that his version of events is always accurate.

This book examines Byzantine attitudes towards warfare at a time of crisis when the empire ceased to be a first rate power in the Mediterranean. It investigates the correspondence between official rhetoric and propaganda, on the one hand, and military realities, on the other. It explores the military ethos of the late Byzantine aristocracy and examines Byzantine perceptions of military leadership in comparison to contemporary western European military thinking. The organisation and nature of military operations and the role of the various groups of soldiers are explored to set Byzantine warfare in the wider geographical and cultural context. In addition, this book provides a comprehensive analysis of the influences other medieval cultures exerted on Byzantine military thought, organisation and practice.
