The three hundred years covered by this set, 600 to 900, weren't a time of great change for the Byzantine or Eastern Roman Empire. Although the empire had conquered, or as it saw it reconquered, new territories in Italy and Africa in the previous century, the empire was still in a difficult position, with increasing difficulties in the Balkans & frequent wars with the Persians. During the seventh century a new foe, Muslim Arabs, would take vast areas away from the Empire forever, while battles with Bulgars & Avars lost much of the Balkans. Despite many more losses and a shortage of both money and manpower, the Empire would subsequently recover from these losses. Arabs and Slavs remained the main enemies, but internal divisions in the Caliphate helped to give the Empire a stronger position by 900, which at least limited any further losses.

Throughout the lifetime of the Western Roman Empire, it had been the infantry that played the dominant role in Roman tactics, but during the fifth century cavalry had gradually increased in importance, and this trend continued through the period in question here, although infantry still had an important role to play, particularly in providing a safe haven for cavalry on the battlefield & in conducting operations on terrain unsuitable for horsemen. This was at least partly due to exposure to the mounted archers of the Steppe peoples, which also provoked a rise in the importance of the bow in Byzantine armies, although many archers were provided by mercenaries and allies & it would seem that during this period archery actually declined amongst native Byzantine forces.
