Description

The knight is the supreme warrior of the Middle Ages. Fully armored and mounted on a magnificent charger, he seems invincible. Honor and  glory await him as, guided by the chivalric code, he fights with lance  and sword. This carefully researched yet entertaining book provides all the essential information you need to become a successful  knight in the later Middle Ages, during the period of the Hundred Years’ War. Should you go on a Crusade? Which order of chivalry might you  consider joining? What is required when you go through the ceremony of knighthood? Here are the answers to these and many more questions  plus practical advice on topics such as equipment, fighting methods, and  the conventions of warfare. But the knightly life is not all battles  and sieges: there are also tournaments and jousts to enjoy and the world of courtly love.
