Most historians agree that the Carolingian Age, from the 8th to the 10th Century AD, represents one of the most important turning points in European history. It is also agreed that early Carolingian military success was built on good leadership, adequate administration and troops with consistently high morale, creating an army that was able to adapt itself to face many and differing foes. This absorbing text explores the organisation and history of the Carolingian Empire during the age of one of history’s most romanticised and heroic figures – Charlemagne.
