English Medieval Knight 1400-1500

by Christopher Gravett

Part of the Warrior S. Series

English Medieval Knight 1400-1500 Synopsis

This book is a detailed and fascinating look at the English knight through the high watermark of the age of mail. This, and all the other equipment a knight needed are examined, together with the role of squires. In order to take a 'through the eyes' look at the life of a knight during this period, the books follows a hypothetical knight, to show how he faired on campaign with the Normans at the loss of Normandy. His son will ride in the civil wars of Henry III and Simon de Montfort and with Edward I in the Welsh and Scottish wars.
