Incredible info, yet details are lacking. Don't plan on making a full suit of armour from this book, but the info if you are welding compitant, will benefit you. It assumes, though explaining your lack of ability, that you know what you are doing before you start. Still, it is very educational.

Okay,
If you have had no training at all on this subject, you will be lost before you begin. The photos are great, yet the full details of the moves are lacking. If you are experience in the eastern martial arts, it's great, otherwise its not that beneficial.

Okay, this book makes much more sense if you've had some training in what he's talking about. Mr. Clements is by far the most formidible expert in the world today on longsword fighting, but this book will not make sense until you actually have some training. I purchase this book about 5 yrs ago and finally had training 3 wks ago and now it makes sense to ...

I mean, what do you expect from Gary Embleton? Nothing but the best. After looking at this book, you will feel that nothing in your kit is up to standard. Want to change that? Then read this short, but sweet book. I highly recommend this to reenactors.

This book, I feel, is written for a much younger crowd, yet the information is invaluable. Written by a great in the sword world, this book makes you realize that Mr. Oakeshott had much more information about the past than swords. It rocks. Read to yourself and your kids and all of you will know what was the real thing back in the day.

Again, great pictures and info, but not quite enough to give it a 10 or close. If you are lacking great quality pictures of medieval items that you love, this is a great book. But if you long for information, this is not the book for you. I still recommend it, though.

If you are interested in the 100 Years War, then this is the book for you. Mr. Turnbull throws so much info into the war that you immediately think that you are an expert in the field. I've read this wonderful book many times and I learn more every single reading. It may not go into politics so much, but it does relate the battles and positioning so well ...

A must buy for the weapons enthusiast. This book gives so much detail and vivid pictures that you really think that you are there. They not only discuss the archealogical evidence, but discuss the weapons and armour of the time. Don't want to hurt your new, expensive sword with test cuts? Just read this book. It does it for you.

Great pictures, but not enough info unless you add it to other modern armour making books. The attempt is great but the overall product is lacking. If you are interested in making your own armor, buy it. If you want to buy your own armor, don't.
