Publisher's description: A detailed account of how armor developed through the Medieval, Tudor, Elizabethan, and Civil War eras, carefully itemizing the subtle changes over a 600-year periodThis study is organized into chapters each focusing on an individual area of body protection, charting the evolution of each piece over time, from helmets and chest protection to arm guards, gauntlets, leg guards, and sabatons. It also encompasses the use of weaponry and its evolution, including protection for horses. With the aid of photographs and illustrations, it looks at how fashions, as well as its protective qualities, influenced the style of armor. Valuable information has been acquired through the study of effigies over a number of years, and using these existing artifacts, supplemented by the author's meticulous illustrations and practical knowledge of armor construction, it has been possible to reconstruct the design and appearance of a wide range of armor.
