Warrior #35: English Medieval Knight 15th Century Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The 15th century was a time of change for knighthood. Knights no longer fought for their lords in return for land, since the feudal summons had long before given way to a system of contracts. Moreover, many knights now preferred the role of landowner, man-about-town or parliamentary representative. However, this was also the age of the knight in plate armour, of the battle of Agincourt and the conquests of Henry V, and of the Wars of the Roses, the bloody internecine struggle that tore medieval England apart. In this title Christopher Gravett describes the life of a 15th century knight, his equipment and experiences from his earliest days as a squire through to his experiences on the battlefields of England and France.

Synopsis:

The first of a three-part study of the English mediaeval knight through three centuries. This volume covers the 15th-century knight, following a hypothetical knight and showing how he fared on campaign with the Normans at the loss of Normandy. It covers recruitment, training and active service.
