Ghulam Spearmen It would seem peculiar that in the lands of Persia, famous for horse and bow, that a tradition of heavy infantry would be born here from ancient Sassanian times. Perhaps the seeds were sown by Alexander’s arrival, or perhaps they were a natural development for the infantry of rugged Khorasan and Eastern Persia. Whatever the case, the Daylami and Khorasanis of Greater Persia stand as eternal as the lands of Persia itself. The dynasties may change, the invaders may come from steppe or desert, yet it is always they who are absorbed into Persia, and not Persia which is absorbed into they. Through their enduring presence has the Ghazni Turks come to place a democracy upon the throne of Persia, with spearmen, bowmen, and horsemen standing together as equals. Truly, the Foot Ghulams of the Ghaznavids are the product of nurture and not nature: such reliable heavy infantry being of Turkish and Indian origin, with but a few Khorasanis thrown in, seems almost blasphemous with both cultures holding little regard to such warriors. Yet no longer are these men of the Turkish Wolves Pack or children of Vishnu, having been smelted down to be crafted as an alloy of peoples, a Damascus sword of sharp Turkish and Indian edge and Hard Persian Core. Their role is like that of all Spearmen of the Ghaznavids: to be a wall behind which the Javelinmen and Archers are protected. In mail hauberk, helmet and leather shields covered of metal, they operate as medium spearmen, suited best to defend against infantry and the attacks of cavalry. At the sight of these soldiers with iron wall of shield, spear, and spirit, one might well have thought himself to have arrived in the time of the Bactrian Greeks. As these men would stand at the vanguard of Ghazni incursions into India and lands to the west, one might well look upon the Sultan of these men and think: “To the strongest did Iskander leave his empire, and now the strongest has come to finally claim it.”
