5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best books I have read to date, 14 Sept. 2007
Having done kendo for a while and some fencing you'd think I had a basic grasp of the principles of swordsmanship. however this is the first book I have read that actually outlines the basics of fencing in an easy to understand and accessable way. the book is clearly written by a man passionate for his art and who has devoted much time and thought to his study; as much a philosphor as a martial artist. begining from basic theory, and a brief history the author works his way through basic training drills and techniques to some of the more difficult and varied ways to handle the european longsword either with one in your hands or not! each technique is laid out in an easy to understand manner and with plenty of detailed and usfull pictures. all though specifically for the longsword parts of the manual would be usefull for swords people of any period and culture


Bows of the World
Bows of the World
by David Gray
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Bows of the world, 14 July 2007
This review is from: Bows of the World (Hardcover)
Bows of the world is an excellent book with some amazing plates. On the subjects of North American and Asian composite recurve bows it is very thorough and extensive however it should be noted that information is perhaps lacking on some of the more rare bow from of indigenous people Oceania. Never the less a interesting and excellent introduction in the science of ethno-toxophily
