The 13th century was a time of change for knights in England. They were faced with rising costs and increasing demands on their time for local government because of their very status in society, until knighthood itself was sometimes avoided. This period saw as well the development of the tournament from the wild team events of the early years of the century to the single jousts with blunt lance. Campaign life in the 13th century also embraced several theatres of war including the baronial revolt against King John, the Barons' Wars of Simon de Montfort (also known as the Second Barons' War, (1264–1267)), and the Welsh and Scottish wars of Edward I. This title also covers the use and development of arms, armour, costume and other equipment.

Only 3 left in stock (more on the way). However, this book is a great historical book which reveals the Knights at a particular time in history. With the entire collection of the three books in this set, I am able to study the improvement of the technology of Knights and knighthood over the years leading up to the Hundred Years War. Historians tend to view the Hundred Years War as a turning point which started the downfall of the knight as an effective instrument of war.

This is how the English Knights looked in the period of time just prior to the Hundred Years War (1337 through 1453 C.E. [during the Common Era]). This is actually the first book in a three-part series of books on the English Medieval Knight. The period of time covered by this first book is from 1200 C.E. until 1300 C.E. The second book in the series covers the time between 1300 C.E. and 1400 C.E. The date of 1300 seems quite arbitrary since it falls in the middle of the First Scottish War of Independence (1297 C.E.-1314 C.E.)

However, this book is a great historical book which reveals the Knights at a particular time in history. With the entire collection of the three books in this set, I am able to study the improvement of the technology of Knights and knighthood over the years leading up to the Hundred Years War.

Historians tend to view the Hundred Years War as a turning point which started the downfall of the knight as an effective instrument of war. Thus, most of the last two volumes in this series cover the time following the crucial turning point in military technology at the Battle of Crecy on August 26, 1346, when the long bow became the recognized as the major new weapon of war in place of the heavy Knight. Thus, the last two books deal largely with desperate attempts to improve the knight as a weapon war after the realization of the shortcomings of the knight exposed at the Battle of Crecy.

good book, i bought the English knights from 1200-1500 and if you read them in order you can actually see the changes that went on with armor, and weapons. i highly recommend.

The pictures in this book clearly illustrate the era of the 13th century knight. I love the art work and the detailed reading.
