But what was the knight truly like? The world of the English medieval knight was complex and ever-changing. An expert on medieval military history, Christopher Gravett describes how the knights evolved over three centuries of English and European history, the wars they fought, their lives both in peacetime and on campaign, the weapons they fought with, the armour and clothing they wore and their fascinating code and mythology of chivalry. The text is richly illustrated with images ranging from manuscript illustrations to modern artwork reconstructions, and many photographs of historic artefacts and sites.
