Because medieval warfare had its colourful side it is easy to overlook the fact that war was a very serious business in an age when brute force was the recognised way of settling a quarrel, and conflict formed a normal way of life at every level of society. This book illustrates the art of war with dozens of medieval images from books and manuscripts, and reveals a wealth of social and military background on heraldry, armour, knights and chivalry, castles, sieges, and the arrival of gunpowder.
This new edition is completely revised with a selection of new illustrations from the British Library’s medieval manuscripts.
