I bought this for the 86 colour illustrations, but was pleasantly suprised to find it contains much more. The pictures are excellent and each is acompanied by a description which, when taken together, give a thorough summary of the development of armour across Western Europe in the time frame mentioned in the title. Whilst there are a few pictures of the less well equipped such as peasantry and of other arms such as artillerymen, the emphasis is mainly on the heavily armoured nobility. In addition, and although the title doesn't make it clear, the coverage is really restricted to England with the occasional nod to the main English enemies during this period, Scotland and France.

Also included is a very useful glossary of terms for armour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Middle Ages garb, armour The "Who's who" of the period in one shot. 21 Jan. 2014
By B.K.H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I came across this book when I was a teenager & had (& still do have) a big interest in The Medieval Period, especially when it concerns arms & armour.
It has a fairly straight-forward account of who was who back in this time as well as some background on the evolution of what we know as classic armour from The Battle of Hastings, (1066), Robert The Bruce & Scottish Independence to the time of the 30 years War. It covers about 400 years of the styles & development & does a great job at it as well.
The colour plates are incredibly details. Not just armour, but the colourful heraldry of the time.
If you like arms, armour, heraldry, then this would be a great addition to one's library.
You won't be disappointed.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Introductory Guide to Armour 3 Dec. 2014
By danny boy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is long out of print. I strongly recommend this book as it contains a wealth of details on medieval costumes, especially armour and how it gradually evolved through the centuries. The description of each knight is very well-done, and the accompanying drawings are first-rate. If you want a good concise read on knights in armour, this is it.
