Sassanid conscription
Greetings, fellow members of Roman Army Talk.

I am a new member of Roman Army Talk, i like to ask how did the Sassanid Persian draft their subject into military service, what are the benefits of drafting reluctant people to serve in the military? What are the consequences of conscription? and why conscription was a favorable method for the Persian authority?

This subject discuss the causes of Sassanid conscription imposed over common people, what are the pros and cons of conscription?

Meanwhile, i would like to ask a very fundamental question:

Did the Sassanid maintain an all-volunteer force of infantry which do not include the famous Daylamites mercenaries, or did the Sassanid authority favor conscription over all-volunteer force?

Thank you.
