Brzezinski & Mielczarek did a splendid job presenting a concise and quick-hitting narrative of this otherwise overlooked people group. The Sarmatians were highly influential in the course of western civilization. The authors provide rich archeological detail for such a handy source, (48 pages, well worth the money). Gerry Embleton is to be commended for his fine artistry, especially plates D&E. Overall the book was well organized and answers the fundamental questions history buffs and others in the twenty-first century would want to know without overwhelming them. One example, as barbarians the Sarmatians were not Germanic, but Iranian. As a historian, I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to get a handle on the Middle Ages, or is interested in early Eurasian history (kudos to Osprey).Was this review helpful?
