Ghulam Infantry Though the Ghaznavids have done much to adopt the Khorasani reliance upon spearmen, old habits die hard and most of their Turkish Foot Ghulams are armed with bow and mace, spears often left to those of Khorasani or Indian heritage. Yet these infantrymen have adopted much from their brethren, serving not as light and fragile turkoman tribesmen, but as stout infantry, often remarked to be the ones advancing with spearmen in support, instead of being the ones who support the advancing spearmen! Wearing mailed coats with the addition of leather lamellar, their maces belted and metal-covered leather shields slung upon their backs, these Ghulam Infantry serve as Hybrid-warriors, as capable in melee as at archery. Despite such a spirit for close-quarters-combat, their value would make their role in open battle better served by firing behind the spearmen, and engaging their foes in melee upon having weakened them. Though there may be archers heavier or infantry stronger in their strikes, the versatility of these infantrymen along with their iron-discipline and moral grant them a place upon the pedestal of history’s most respected infantry. To be in use and find such a success where horse archer and heavy lancer are king is in itself an accomplishment few save others of Daylam and Khorasan may hope to match.
