Routledge, 2004. — 384 p.This comprehensive volume provides easily accessible factual material on all major areas of warfare in the medieval west. The whole geographical area of medieval Europe, including eastern Europe, is covered, together with essential elements from outside Europe such as Byzantine warfare, nomadic horde invasions and the Crusades. The Routledge Companion to Medieval Warfare is presented in themed, illustrated sections, each preceded by a narrative outline offering a brief introduction. Within each section, Jim Bradbury presents clear information on battles and sieges, and generals and leaders. Readable and engaging, this detailed work makes use of archaeological information and includes clear discussions of controversial issues. The author examines practical topics including castle architecture, with descriptions of specific castles, shipbuilding techniques, improvements in armour, specific weapons, and developments in areas such as arms and armour, fortifications, tactics and supply. Jim Bradbury taught at a secondary school for ten years before becoming a senior lecturer and head of section for history at Borough Road College, now part of Brunel University. He has written widely on medieval history, with an emphasis on military history.
