edieval warfare is notoriously characterised by savagery brutality and aêts of horrific cruelty So how did a period that was racked with uprisings, suffering social unrest come to be known as an Age of Chivalry? In this compelling and vivid portrait, Sean McGlynn explores warfare in the Middle Ages and the military atrocities that it. He reveals the barbarism of the era as not simply a natural outburst of a violent age, but a strategic means to achieve specific military objectives. Also explained is the rationale that lay behind the carnage- and how it became inextricably linked with chivalry: a code that held little meaning for ordinary soldiers, but was used to mitigate the excesses of bloodlust 'Excellent... Unlike many books on warfare, this book dares to say what others won't" Vividly and wittily related, full of detail and constantly fascinating PHOENIX NON-PICTION
