Sword in Hand
by Ewart Oakeshott

Reading this book is like spending an evening with world's foremost expert on the medieval sword and discussing his favorite subject. Mr. Oakeshott rewrote a collection of articles, adding additional chapters and illustrations, and describing the development of the medieval sword in its historical context. This concise overview of the development of the European sword is enhanced with the unique insight of the author and gritty anecdotal examples that bring life to these historical subjects.

The work is heavily illustrated with the author's unparalleled collection of photos and his own illustrations presented in a large format. This gives the student of the sword detail often left out of other volumes on the topic.

An excellent addition to any library of the medieval period and a must for the student of the sword, these 147 pages with 126 illustrations are something not to be missed.
