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 armour and its associated weapons and as a short guide to the craft of the armourer. Through examining contemporary images, existing examples of armour, and historical accounts, the author explains in precise and engaging prose all the key points about the development, construction, and proper wearing of armour and the attempt to counter this protection to allow the reader to gain useful knowledge and correct many misunderstandings and myths surrounding armour and its history.
