"A classic in the field" - Walter J. Karcheski, Jr., Chief Curator of Arms and Armour, Frazier Historical Arms Museum

With an immense amount of information condensed into a compact book, Armour and Weapons
provides a clear presentation of the history of personal military
protection for people and horses from chain mail to highly ornamental
costumes. Illustrated with the author's excellent, detailed line
drawings and photographs, the book is designed to serve as both a means
of studying the history of armor and its associated weapons and as a
short guide to the craft of the armorer.

Through
examining comtemporary images, existing examples of armor, and
historical accounts, the author explains in precise and engaging prose
all the key points about the development, construction, and proper
wearing of armor and the attempt to counter this protection to allow the
reader to gain useful knowledge and correct many misunderstandings and
myths surrounding armor and its history.

Contents:
The Age of Mail (1066-1277); The Transition Period (1277-1410); The
Wearing of Armour and its Constructional Details; Plate Armour
(1410-1600); Horse Armour; The Decadence of Armour; Weapons.
