The Springald was a ballistic weapon powered by torsion, developed from the ancient technology of Greek and Roman siege engines. Together with its cousin the great crossbow, it enjoyed a brief voyage in medieval Europe until the coming of gunpowder changed the face of war. Jean Liebel has drawn extensively from the rich European source material and his own innovative experimental models to provide the first detailed study of these weapons. His approach is highly original and will provide food for thought for everyone in medieval siege engines and siege warfare.
