This comprehensive volume provides easily-accessible factual material on all major areas of warfare in the medieval west. The whole geographical area of medieval Europe, including eastern Europe, is covered, including essential elements from outside Europe such as Byzantine warfare, nomadic horde invasions and the Crusades.

Progressing chronologically, the work is presented in themed, illustrated sections, with a narrative outline offering a brief introduction to the area. Within each chronological section, Jim Bradbury presents clear and informative pieces on battles, sieges, and generals.

The author examines practical topics including:

  • castle architecture, with examinations of specific castles
  • ship building techniques
  • improvements in armour
  • specific weapons
  • developments in areas such as arms and armour, fortifications, tactics and supply.

Readable and engaging, this detailed provides students with an excellent collection of archaeological information and clear discussions of controversial issues.

About the Author:

Jim Bradbury taught at a secondary school for ten years, before becoming a senior lecturer and head of section for history at Borough Road College, now part of Brunel University. He has written widely on medieval history, with an emphasis on military history. Previous publications include The Medieval Archer, The Medieval Siege, and The Battle of Hastings.

Review:

Medieval warfare is one of those topics that remain fascinating to a wide audience of readers and students; every faculty member will find this reference work an excellent resource.
–Constance Berman, University of Iowa

As someone who has taught medieval military history ... I have found it difficult to find ready material of the kind Bradbury offers here.
–Jim Murray, University of Cincinnati

Bradbury has a fine record of publication on the subject of medieval warfare ... the author is a respected expert in his field, and he takes a coherent and sensible approach to the topic.
–David Ditchburn, University of Aberdeen
