Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
An engaging book of great use to scholars and students. (It) demystifies the material culture of an important aspect of the military and tournament activities of early modern Europe. .. If one had room for only a single book on the subject, this volume should be it. SEVENTEENTH CENTURY NEWS This book represents part of the essential reading list for any student of the subject. (...) The coverage of the subject is comprehensive. The illustrations, both line drawings and photographs, are excellent. HOBILAR This seminal work makes a welcome return...Anyone who has read any of Mr Oakeshott's books will know well the clear, chatty style of his text...it is a pleasure to read.CHRONICLE REGIA ANGLORUMThe contents of this book are comprehensive...woven into the background of history... A further volume by one of the world's leading authorities on (the subject) and a true work of reference not merely for any serious student of the subject but also those with an interest in a lively and most readable account of the artifacts of warfare during this period of development. CLASSIC ARMS & MILITARIA
