The idea of late medieval arms and armour often conjures up images of lumbering warriors, clad in heavy plate armour, hacking away at with each other with enormous weapons - depictions perpetuated in both bad literature and bad movies.

From Bannockburn to Bosworth, Poitiers to Pavia, this book is an indispensable introduction to an iconic era.
