Hans Delbruck shows how feudal military organization varied in different countries and why the knightly forces could not hold up against the barbarous Normans. He studies military developments in the kingdoms that rose with the collapse of the Carolingian Empire, as well as the trend toward mercenary armies. When the Swiss peasants, forming the first true infantry, defeated the Burgundian knights in the fourteenth century, the era of modern warfare had begun.
Medieval Warfare begins in the time of Charlemagne. These pages are crowded with re-creations of famous events like the Battle of Hastings and movements like the Crusades.
This edition marks the first appearance in paperback of Walter J. Renfroe Jr.'s English translation of Medieval Warfare. The other three volumes of Delbruck's History of the Art of War were also translated by Renfroe and are available as Bison Books.
