Backyard warriors can gain a new appreciation of Dark Ages arms races with this hands-on guide to building 35 pre-industrial siege weapons. As in his previous Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction, John Austin guides readers through the entire process with step-by-step instructions, clear illustrations, and safety instructions. Not least, the necessary construction materials are inexpensive and easy to find; witness the clothespin ballista, the bottle cap crossbow, and the chopstick bow. Just don't consume parts of the marshmallow catapult before battle!
