Description

Cataphract is the eighth volume in the Great Battles of History Series, following The Great Battles of Alexander which portrayed the Macedonian art of war, SPQR which portrayed the legion of the Roman Republic, and Caesar: The Civil Wars and Caesar: Conquest of Gaul which portrayed the legion during the Gallic and Civil Wars of Julius Caesar.

Cataphract portrays the development of the art of war wrought by the early Byzantine empire (also known as the Eastern Roman Empire) during the reign of the Emperor Justinian under its great generals Belisarius and Narses.

To place these battles in their proper historical context, the Campaign Game, Justinian, is enclosed, which covers the quest to reconquer the Roman Empire by Justinian I, Emperor of Eastern Rome (Byzantium). Justinian’s reign represents Byzantium’s high-water mark; his conquest of lands is exceeded in Roman history only by that of Augustus and Trajan.

  • Four 22" x 34" map sheets (Cataphract) and One 22" x 34" map sheet (Justinian)
