This book is poorly named as it covers the dress, tactics, temperament, and equipment of fighting men in Britain from the Roman occupation to Norman times. It has an entire chapter dedicated to Irish and Picts. What makes this book so valuable is it being crammed with full color pictures of hard core re-enactors who have constructed equipment from the time period ranging from shoes and tunics to helmets and swords. The equipment presented in this book sets a standard by which all our own efforts should be judged.

Hardcover - 144 pages (1997) Brassey; ISBN: 1857532139
