Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Discover the world of the medieval knight — from battles to banquets, sieges to chivalry. Here is a spectacular and informative guide to the life and times of the medieval knight and his followers. Superb color photographs of everything from suits of armor to the lord and lady of the manor in full costume offer a unique "eyewitness" view into the lives of medieval people at peace and during wartime. See a horse's armor, medieval siege engines, how armor is made, how a castle is attacked and defended, how a knight put on his armor and the weapons of a Japanese samurai. Learn the rules of jousts and tournaments, the language of heraldry, how the sections of a suit of armor were joined together, how a falconer trained his hawk and why the Crusades were important. Discover who treated the wounded on a medieval battlefield, how knights hunted for deer, the way the first guns worked and how a knight recruited his followers, and much, much more!

Synopsis:

Detailed photographs trace the origins, heyday, and eventual decline of knighthood, chivalry, and the feudal system. Readers discover how armor was made, how men became knights, and what life was like in a medieval castle. Full-color photos.
