Short but very well written.,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Norman Knight AD 950-1204 (Warrior, Band 1) (Taschenbuch)
There is only one problem with this book. It is much to short to cover this topic, given that the author has to present the historical background before describing in some detail equipment, training and life of a norman knight in settings as different as Normandy, the conquest of England, Sicily and the first crusade. However, keeping this limitation in mind the book is very well written and offers a lot of skillfully presented information. This includes the colour plates by Christa Hook, which - though lacking the vigour of Angus McBride's works in other volumes of this series - give a very good impression of armour, weapons and clothing.
