In medieval times an individual often needed to defend his life, his family and his property, and mercenaries earned their living by hiring out their skills, while feudal noblemen regularly mustered their men-at-arms and their subordinate vassals and tenants to provide military service, even to the point of leading them on Crusades to the Holy Land and elsewhere. In the later medieval period the growing cities required their citizens to take up arms as militia in defence of the community during times of external threat. In The Medieval Fighting Man - Europa Militaria Special No 18, meticulous use is made of the sources available to enable the materials, colours and patterns used for reconstructed clothing to represent the 'real thing' as accurately as possible. Fortunately, great numbers of medieval weapons and pieces of armour survived and can now be viewed in displays, and these form the basis of the arms presented in this book. This well-researched guide to the costume and equipment of the Medieval fighting man through the period 800-1500 will be of interest to all collectors, re-enactors, costumiers and military historians, and is fully illustrated with 147 colour photographs.

Weapons and Fighting Techniques of the Medieval warrior offers an highly-illustrated fact-filled introduction to the weaponry and fighting methods of the Middles Ages. Divided into four chapters, the main types of Medieval warrior are covered separately: mounted knights, foot soldiers, missile troops and siege engineers and sappers. The popular image of the mounted knight dominating the battlefields of Medieval warfare was far more compelled. Although rarely celebrated in Medieval art or literature, the weapons, technology, and techniques of the ordinary foot soldiers, such as the longbow men and pike-armed landsknechts, had a revolutionary impact on the development of warfare in the middle ages. Disciplined groups of archers were able to defeat better-armored and numerically superior forces of noble knights at battles such as Crecy (1346) and Agincourt (1415), while the development of tightly packed formations of pikemen came to definite military encounters from the early fifteenth century. More significantly, the introduction of gunpowder weapons in the mid fifteenth century had a fundamentally democratizing effect on the way battles were fought and ended the power of heavily-armored cavalry. Written in an accessible style for the non-expert, the book shows how the development of new weapons technology and techniques came to change the face of European warfare from 1,000 to 1,500 AD.
