Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Crisp photographs of art and artifacts from Europe's Middle Ages highlight "Eyewitness Book" overviews of the feudal system from a Knight's perspective and life. The two-page "displays" are annotated views that include descriptions of the warriors, their fighting techniques and flexible fashions- from functional chain mail to decorative body armor. An excellent companion book is Castle also by Christopher Gravett.
