Well illustrated and focusing in the main on the practicalities, this book forms a perfectly serviceable introduction to medieval warfare, very much in the Osprey mode. Foot soldiers get at least as much space as knights, and sieges are also covered, but although the author notes in the introduction that raiding was a far more common method of war than the pitched battle, it is the battle which is alloted more space, with famous examples used as case studies of particular tactical points.
