Enter an exhilarating time of change and clashing foes in this highly-readable exploration of a dangerous aspect of medieval life — the world of battles. Oakeshott explodes the myth that medieval battles were all similar, pointing instead toward the different and fascinating tactics used in four specific battles covering the 12th to the 16th centuries — at Arsuf, Lincoln, Mauron, and Marignano. He touches on the long and terrible wars of The Crusades; explores the charged feud between Richard the Lionheart and his nemesis, Saladin; and examines how the development of weapons altered armor and fighting techniques. Originally published in 1971 - and of interest to both young and older readers - this updated and revised edition of A Knight in Battle has an extensive and useful glossary. The book's wonderful illustrations by the author suggest something of the magic of a past time, including insightful maps of battle sites. Also available from Dufour are A Knight and His Weapons and A Knight and His Castle (see page 28).
