Book Overview

The Medieval Warrior is a gorgeously illustrated, fact-filled introduction to the weaponry and fighting methods of the Middle Ages. Written in an accessible style for the nonexpert--with chapters coveringthe key types of warriors, from mounted knights to foot soldiers, siege engineers to sappers--it shows how the development of new weapons, technology, and techniques changed the face of war in Europe. The popular image of the mounted knight dominating the battlefields still persists, but medieval warfare was in reality far more complex. Rarely celebrated in the art or literature of the time, ordinary foot soldiers--such as longbowmen and pike-armed peasants--had a revolutionary impact on the development of warfare. Disciplined groups of archers defeated larger and better-armored forces of knights, while tightly packed formations of pikemen began defining all military encounters in the fifteenth century. Then the introduction of gunpowder weapons leveled the battlefield and swiftly ended the power of armored cavalry, forever changing the way we wage war.More than 300 beautiful and comprehensive color illustrations showcase the weapons, equipment, techniques, and tactics of the medieval warrior. All types of soldiers appear in stunning detail--including English longbowmen, Norman knights, Milanese crossbowmen, Saxon huscarls, Swiss pikemen, Hussite handgunners, Mongol horse Read More chevron_right
