4.0 out of 5 stars indispensable, 28 Oct 2010
This review is from: German Swords and Sword Makers: Edged Weapon Makers from the 14th to the 20th Centuries (Paperback)
Richard J. Bezdek, whose grandfather emigrated from Frankfurt, Germany, in the 1890s, has been fascinated with German military history since childhood. As a collector, the German cavalry sabers remain his favorite. Focusing on them for his fourth book, here is a history of the men who designed, manufactured and sold these prized weapons, famous for their high-quality since the Middle Ages, when Solingen eventually became the largest of the sword-making centers.
The book is divided in 12 chapters, some not larger than one page. Chapter 8, on the contrary, needs 70 pages to list the German swordmakers from the fourteenth to the twentieth centuries. Probably the largest list ever published, accompanied by the interesting illustrations of German sword maker marks covering 34 pages.
