In battle, the medieval knight was the equivalent of the modern tank. A knight could plough his way through ranks of foot-soldiers, and on massive warhorses in tight formation, a cavalry charge was devastating. This book describes how the order of the knight began, and the training that noble-born sons underwent to achieve knighthood. There are features on King Arthur, medieval poetry and courtly romances, stories of the crusaders, and folktales of rogue and errant knights. The world of the medieval knight is brought to life with over 450 images that illustrate the castles, quests, battles, loves, tournaments and triumphs of these legendary heroes. THE ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF KNIGHTS & THE GOLDEN AGE OF CHIVALRY The history of the medieval knight and the chivalric code explored, with over 450 stunning images of the castles, quests, battles, tournaments, courts and triumphs Charles Phillips CLICK HERE TO READ THE WHOLE BOOK IN DIGITAL FORM
