With its formidable rate of shooting and crushing impact, the longbow in the hands of massed archers made possible the extraordinary victories enjoyed by English forces over superior numbers at Crecy, Poitiers and Agincourt, and remained a key battlefield weapon throughout the Wars of the Roses and beyond. Featuring specially commissioned full-colour artwork and written by a leading expert on medieval weapons and fighting practices, this engaging study casts new light on the development, battlefield use and lasting influence of the longbow.
