KIRKUS REVIEW

A prolfic author once again probes the romantic, colorful age of chivalry, this time producing a detailed, realistic portrait of the knight in armor-- his training, his duties, his weapons, his artistry in combat and war-- in short, the nature of his singular life. This elaboration of the mailed knight's role from the early fourteenth century to the late sixteenth century, is viewed in direct relation to the important historical events of the times. The dignity, the drama, the treachery of knighthood have been captured not only in the fine text, but also in the accurate, skillfully executed drawings. Young readers should find this volume an excellent introduction to the medieval era.
