9781841763392: Siege Weapons of the Far East (1): AD 612–1300 (New Vanguard)

The prevalence of particular fortress types in medieval China, Mongolia, Japan and Korea demanded the evolution of different modes of siege warfare in each country. The wealthy walled towns of China, the mountain fortresses of Korea and the military outposts of Japan each presented different challenges to besieging forces, and this book reveals the diversity of tactics that were developed to meet these challenges. Most of the Far Eastern weaponry of this period originated in China, but was adapted to fit the demands of siegecraft across the region and the individual strengths and weaknesses of each piece of machinery are studied here.

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Wayne Reynolds (illustrator). Language: English . Brand New Book. This volume is concerned with the machinery of mediaeval siegecraft as used by Chinese, Mongol, Japanese and Korean armies. Almost all the machinery was initially developed in China, but each country provided a different context into which the siege engines fitted, and distinctive differences reveal both strengths and weaknesses in the machines themselves, as well as raising questions about cultural attitudes to siegecraft and even to the practice of war itself. This is the first volume in the New Vanguard series which explores siege weapons of the Far East, and it deals with the machinery of siege warfare prior to the introduction of gunpowder.
