In the popular imagination, there can be no more archetypal symbol of the Middle
Ages than that of the knight. The origins of knights are unknown, but their
heyday was between the 10th and 15th centuries. Indeed the knighthood reached its
pinnacle of splendor in the 12th and 13th centuries during the crusades.
Later it was the rise of the musket and harquebus rang the death knell of knights
on the battlefield.
The format of ""Medieval Knights"" follows that of other popular titles in the
series. Each of the 22 color plates features a battle scene, or items of knight
armor and weapons that are of particular interest. The accomplished artwork is
produced by the author, which means that they present all pertinent details. The
color plates are accompanied by detailed text that describes the development of
the knightly orders, and some of the battles they fought in. Such famous
characters as Richard the Lionheart, Alfonso VIII, The Black Prince, Joan of Arc,
all make their appearance, as do such famous battles as those of Bannockburn,
Tannenberg, and Agincourt. There is further informative detail included on
mythical knights, the Order of the Templar and knights from particular nations
like Germany or Italy.
Tracing knights from their early origins, through their famous battles, this book
is full of fascinating and useful information. They were certainly much more than
heavily armored men riding on horses, as this book correctly points out.
For those wishing to increase their knowledge of this interesting era, then this
book is a logical solution. The combination of color artwork and incisive text
makes it a winning formula.
