During the Middle Ages, infantry warfare underwent significant evolution as various armies adapted their strategies to accommodate changing technology and tactics. Early medieval armies consisted primarily of infantry soldiers armed with spears, swords, and shields. However, the rise of mounted knights and crossbowmen created a need for more versatile and effective infantry forces. In response, armies began to incorporate new weapons such as the halberd, a long polearm with a sharpened blade, a hook, and a spike. The halberd was effective both against cavalry and other infantry, as it could be used for thrusting, chopping, and hooking.
By the late Middle Ages, most armies had converged towards the use of halberdier regiments, which were versatile enough to serve in a variety of roles. Halberdiers could be used for defensive or offensive purposes, and were effective against both cavalry and infantry. They could also operate in a variety of terrains, from open fields to forests and urban environments. This versatility made them an invaluable asset to any army. As a result, halberdiers remained a key part of European armies until the development of firearms in the early modern period.
As the use of halberds became more widespread, armies began to develop specialized units of halberdiers, often trained in the art of pike and shot, a tactical formation that combined the use of pikemen and musketeers. This combination proved particularly effective against cavalry charges, as the pikes could fend off the horses, while the muskets provided supporting fire. Over time, these units of halberdiers became the dominant type of infantry in European armies.
