This study combines both a broad introduction to medieval warfare and detailed studies of warriors and weaponry throughout the Middle Ages. Packed full of wonderful black and white illustrations, Lepage begins with the late Roman army, the Huns, Germans, Franks and Vikings, before moving on to the age of feudalism, knights, chivalry and crusading, and warfare of the High Middle Ages. Descriptions of weaponry, armour and tactics, are accompanied by detailed discussion of, for example, the nature of pitched battles, siege tactics, naval warfare, the wounded and the dead, religious military orders, mercenaries and the advent of gunpowder and firearms. A great, well-rounded account of the subject.
