4th Impression. [First Edition: 1964] From the cover: This account of medieval weapons is simple and concise, and deals with the most important parts of a vast and fascinating subject. The author describes swords, daggers, hafted weapons, and the early development of firearms. Like his previous books, it is notable for its accuracy, and for its lively enthusiasm. It is illustrated lavishly with the authors own line drawings. Taken in conjunction with A Knight and His Armour and A Knight and His Horse, it completes a survey of knightly equipment. To follow will be A Knight in His Castle, which will set the medieval fighting man firmly in his natural surroundings.
