Buy 3, pay for 2 across the Arms and Armour book series.
In this introductory guide, filled with fabulous photography and marvellous anecdotes, internationally-renowned edged weapons expert Robert Woosnam-Savage describes the brutal reality of personal protection and attack in the so-called ‘age of chivalry’. From Bannockburn to Bosworth, Poitiers to Pavia, this book is an indispensable introduction to an iconic era.
The idea of late medieval arms and armour often conjures up images of lumbering warriors, clad in heavy plate armour, hacking away at with each other with enormous weapons – depictions perpetuated in both bad literature and bad movies.
The book forms part of a series of introductions to aspects of the Royal Armouries' collection of arms and armour. Written by specialists in the field, they are packed full of fascinating information and stunning photography.
