The 14th-century knight lived in a time of change, in terms of both recruitment methods and the appearance of fighting men. This title describes all aspects of the knight's life, including his training in the castle yard and the hard knocks of the tournament. The knight's life on campaign is explored along with the role of mercenary knights, the motivation of knights in the field and the influence of chivalry.
