Dom Diogo Gomes de Figueiredo's work on the use of the montante, the two-handed sword native to Spain and Portugal, is now available in English translation. This is a relatively short work, but represents almost half of the currently known material for this weapon from these two countries, and is the primary source that Steve Hick and I have taught from at the last 3 WMAWs, and that Steve Hick and Matt Galas have taught from at recent HEMAC events. The translation, transcription, and an article on the history and context of this weapon's use are available as a free download from the Oakeshott Institute at http://oakeshott.org/Article.html.

Fantastic Eric! Sincere thanks to yourself and Steve for translating and for sharing with us. If we ever meet in person allow me to buy you a beer.

Cheers,

Bill furiously downloading
