5.0 out of 5 stars A must have book., 26 Sept. 2013

This review is from: The Longbow (Weapon) (Paperback)
80 pages of longbow heaven. Thank you Mr Loades this book is 100% joy. All I need now is for you to do a TV series on Crecy, Poitiers and even Jack Churchill. Traditional archers take note, you will learn at least one thing from this book you will be able to share on the shooting line. The photo's and illistration's are excellent and even the inclusion of Mike in the front line points to his obvious passion for the subject,which shines through the whole book as with all of his work.This is a must have book for Archer's, History buff's and red blooded Englishmen. Buy it now, while you wait for the DVD of "Going Medieval".

This review is from: The Longbow (Weapon) (Paperback)
I found this book an excellent and very easy read. Mike Loades explains everything in easy to understand terms and validates much of the facts and information the book contains. I particularly enjoyed reading his views on some of the historical facts. I read the book very quickly as I found it difficult to put down, it's due a second reading as soon as I finish the book I am currently enjoying..
