    ePUB ar1web.co ð Swords and Swordsmen Epub ↠ Swords and ePUB ↠ swords kindle, swordsmen ebok, Swords and kindle, Swords and Swordsmen PDF/EPUBAfter reading Loades's excellent The Longbow I had to get his Swords Swordsmen This book is almost 500 pages long and I was rapt reading each page of it Instead of focusing on one version of this weapon Loades discusses exemplars of various types of swords through time starting with the sword of Tutankhamun in Egypt all the way through the swords of JEB Stuart and GA Custer in the American Civil War There are 15 chapters all discussing different eras and swords that provide a mountain of insight The love Loades has for and the practical experience he has with the topic shines through on every page Just as with The Longbow you’ll learn about use construction the interplay with armor and much Heck I got the ideas for at least three novels reading this book I loved it as much as I loved the first
