Abstract. The article provides a critical analysis of the monography of Armen Ayvazyan “The Armenian Military in the Byzantine Empire. Conflict and Alliance under Justinian and Maurice” (Alfortville, 2014). The conclusion of non-conformity of the title and its content is made. The structure and logic of the work are considered. Examples of unjustified unambiguous interpretation of controversial issues are given. The authors detected the narrative character of the work, which brought the relatively small contribution to the Armenian studies and military-historical science.

Key words: Justinian, Maurice, Armenia, Byzantium, military history, Armenian rebellion of 538–539 AD, battle of Avnik.
