Format: Hardcover
An excellent introduction to the subject, though no more than that. There are certain anachronisms throughout, such as bows being 'fired' which should mean they are set alight. 'Chainmail' is used as well which is an entirely meaningless term within the historical context of this book. Nevertheless, it is well illustrated to back up what is said in the text and whilst the battle reports are less than satisfactory, they do at least serve to contextualise some of the points made by the author. I found it to be an entertaining and useful read and has proved to be a springboard for further studies on the subject. Well worth buying.

pretty danged good! 21 Feb. 2010
By Caraculiambro - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is one of those oversized books intended to be sold on the bargain racks of major book chains.

But if you're into this kind of stuff, what a bargain! Plenty of color plates, lots of black and white drawings of various weapons and implements of war.

The must-have for the fantasy author, costume designer, DM, or video game art director!
