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.
