Win a copy of European Weapons and Armour: From the Renaissance to the Industrial Revolution, by Ewart Oakeshott

We're having another great book giveaway! This time, we're giving away Oakeshott's European Weapons and Armour: From the Renaissance to the Industrial Revolution to one lucky myArmoury.com member. This book represents an absolute essental addition to any collector's library. If you don't already own this book, you need this book. It's that simple.


This is a brand new copy. 10" x 7" hardcover with dust jacket, 288 pages, many illustrations and black and white photographs. Published by Boydell & Brewer in November 16, 2000. ISBN: 0851157890



Both a work of scholarship, and a treasury of information, for anyone seeking a factual and vivid account of the story of arms from the Renaissance period to the Industrial Revolution. The author chooses as his starting-point the invasion of Italy by France in 1494, which sowed the dragon's teeth of all the successive European wars; the French invasion was to accelerate the trend towards new armaments and new methods of warfare. The author describes the development of the handgun and the pike, the use and style of staff-weapons, mace and axe and war-hammer, dagger and dirk and bayonet. He shows how armour attained its full Renaissance splendour and then suffered its sorry and inevitable decline, culminating in the Industrial Revolution, with its far-reaching effects on military armaments. Above all, he follows the long history of the sword, queen of weapons, to the late eighteenth century, when it finally ceased to form a part of a gentleman's every-day wear. Lavishly illustrated. Ewart Oakeshott was one of the world's leading authorities on the arms and armour of medieval Europe. His other works on the subject include Records of the Medieval Sword and The Sword in the Age of Chivalry.

This book has an approximate retail price of $35-50 US.
