This review is from: Swords and Swordsmen (Hardcover)
Since starting university, I've found the idea of picking up an academic book to sometimes be a bit of a challenge, and something to dread. I've come across books that bog me down with statistics, that waffle on and do a thousand words when one hundred will do. Swords & Swordsmen, is nothing like that. From the first chapter on, it's drawn me in and kept me engaged, and driven me to want to research more into these weapons and into the people that used them with a constant enthusiasm that seems to almost bounce off the page along with illustrations that really get the point across. I'd recommend it to anyone with an interest in weaponry, or... hell, an interest in history in general. 10/10!
