A common mission in the 31 essays is to debunk earlier notions that medieval warfare was all about mounted knights and their ineffective rabble foot soldiers until the Flemish and the English turned the tables in the 14th century; and that war, being nothing but politics by other means, could be relegated to footnotes. Reproduced from their publication during the second half of the 20th century, and a little beyond, they consider such topics as an account of the Battle of Hattin referring to the Frankish mercenaries in Oriental Muslim states, and the army of Godfrey of Bouillon 1096-99.
