Rome's Enemies (vol. 3): Parthians and Sassanid Persians (1986)
In: Men-At-Arms Series, 175
Osprey, 1986, 48 p.
Abstract: Color plates illustrated by Angus McBride.

The Parthians were a warrior people. Though possessing no regular army they were superb horsemen and archers, and in time of war the nobility provided heavily armoured knights mounted on weight-carrying chargers. At Carrhae, it is believed that 20,000 Roman troops out of a force of about 36,000 died at the hands of the Parthians. In the third of four volumes covering Rome's enemies, this fascinating text by Peter Wilcox examines the armies and campaigns of the Parthians and Sassanid Persians. [Publisher]
