This is my first volume in Osprey's Warrior series and I have to say that I am underwhelmed. Once again, small format of Osprey books turns out to be both a blessing and a curse. On one hand, it is a sweet little volume that provides adequate, albeit brief introduction to the topic. On the other hand, I am a bit suprised over the fact that so much space has been "wasted" on more generic issues such as weapon technology, certain features of defensive equipment and training. All those digressions make this volume into something of a mixed bag.
