Crusader Castles of the Teutonic Knights (1) AD 1230-1466 by S.R. Turnbull

Book Description

The Teutonic Knights were the most warlike of the religious orders, and this is reflected in the architecture they left behind. The Teutonic memorials are the magnificent castles they built as a result of their conquest of Prussia. They were all built of brick, and raised during a period of less than a century and a half between 1230 and 1380. Many of these dramatic fortresses still exist today in what is now Poland, and provide a unique example of an architectural style that is both well defined and very closely reflects the nature of the men who created it. This book details the history of these spectacular fortresses from their inception through to their eventual decline and fall.

Samurai Heraldry by S.R. Turnbull Samurai Heraldry, Paperback (March 2002)

Britain's leading historian of Samurai warfare describes, explains and illustrates the strikingly colourful heraldry of the great warring families and their feudal armies in medieval Japan. Illustrated with many identified examples.

Siege Weapons of the Far East by S.R. Turnbull Siege Weapons of the Far East, Paperback (January 2002)

From the 11th century AD, East Asian armies used exploding missiles and siege cannon to reduce the fortification of their enemies, a level of technology that would not be seen in Europe until the 19th century. This book details the design and use of the wide range of weaponry available.

Ashigaru 1467-1649 by S.R. Turnbull Ashigaru 1467-1649, Paperback (March 2001)

The Ashigaru were the foot soldiers of old Japan. Although recruited first to swell an army's numbers and paid only by loot, the Samurai began to realize their worth. This title tells their story, drawing on Japanese sources and showing the disciplined ranks that they became.

Nagashino, 1575 by S.R. Turnbull Nagashino, 1575, Paperback (January 2001)

Nagashino changed the face of Japanese warfare as common soldiers humbled the noble Samurai and courage and the code of "bushido" were no longer enough in the face of effective gunpowder weapons. This title examines the transition of Japanese warfare through the Nagashino battle.
