Most historians agree that the Carolingian Age, from the 8th to the 10th Century AD, represented one of the most important turning points in European history.

It can be said with some certainty that early Carolingian military success was built on good leadership, adequate administration, and troops whose morale was almost consistently superb. It is also clear that the Carolingian army managed to adapt itself to face many and differing foes. This absorbing text by David Nicolle explores the organization and history of the Carolingian Empire during the age of one of history's most romanticised and heroic figures - Charlemagne.
