Lots of good info, but a little hard to keep straight. 5 Sept. 2007
By Robert P. Wenzlaff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I found a lot of the information about miedieval combat sport in this book most enlightening. It is a good read if you are into medieval
recreation or history.

I had one major problem in following Mr. Crouch, though. He often blurred the distinction between medieval historical sourses and medieval fictional sources. I found many paragraphs where he would quote an exant period decree text and _Morte' de Arthur_ back-to-back without taking a breath. If you arern't already familiar with the nature of the texts, you might become confused as to what part of his description is historical fact and what part has been colored through the eyes of storytelling.

Probably not a good first text on the medieval history, but if you're already up on medieval studies, anad want some specific info on this particular aspect, it's a good addition to your collection.
