ROAD TO MANZIKERT: BYZANTINE AND ISLAMIC WARFARE 527-1071
by Brian Todd Carey and Joshua B Allfree

Signs of use, text clean. In August 1071, Byzantine Emperor Romanus IV Diogenese led a powerful army in an attempt to roll back Seljuk Turkish incursions into the Anatolian heartland of the Empire. Outmanoeuvred by the Turkish sultan, Alp Arslan, Romanus was forced to battle with only half his troops near Manzikert. By the end of that fateful day much of the Byzantine army was dead, the rest scattered in flight and the Emperor himself a captive. As a result, the Anatolian heart was torn out of the empire and it was critically weakened, while Turkish power expanded rapidly, eventually leading to Byzantine appeals for help from Western Europe, thus prompting the First Crusade
