Rooted in the duel and the traditions of cavalry and designed for serious combat, Giuseppe Radaelli s sabre method revolutionized sabre instruction and paved the way for modern sabre fencing. Christopher Holzman offers the first translation of the classic book on Radaelli s method and adds a thorough and practical course adapted to modern conditions. Modern fencers will recognize it as the immediate ancestor of their sport and a source of still-fresh insights; historical fencers will salute the highest development of the art and science of serious sabre combat. There are ten beautiful 81/2 x 211/2 tipped-in plates, as well as a glossary and an unusually thorough synoptic table of offensive, defensive, and counteroffensive actions and exercises.
