Abstract:

A best-selling expert on medieval warfare has produced a hugely successful book--over 100,000 copies sold--that returns by popular demand as the premier reference on knighthood. The riveting chronicle trains its focus on the golden years of the knight during the 14th and 15th centuries. The life of a knight starts with his earliest upbringing, his formal education, and his dangerous, exacting years of training. Once a knight is ready for a life of battle, the story turns to his vast choices of weapons and armor--all shown in graphic illustrations. Charts and maps help portray battle strategies and tactics, while behind-the-scenes unfolds a drama of intrigue, chivalry, and fanaticism, from Edward III and the Black Prince to the fall of Richard III on Bosworth Field. Illustrations from archives provide rare scenes of people, equipment, and battle scenes, while modern photos display battlefields and castles as they look today. --Publisher description.
