Journal of Medieval Military History : Volume X Hardback

Part of the Journal of Medieval Military History series

Description

The tenth anniversary of the Journal includes pieces by some of the most distinguished scholars of military history, including an analysis of tenth-century Ottonian warfare on the eastern frontier of the Empire by David and Bernard Bachrach.

As ever, the contributions cover a wide span both chronologically (from an analysis of the careers of Justinian's generals in the sixth century, to a study of intelligence-gathering in the Guelders War at the start of the sixteenth) and geographically (from Michael Prestwich's transcription of excerpts from the Hagnaby chronicle describing Edward I's wars in Wales, to a detailed treatment of the Ottoman-Hungarian campaigns of 1442). Other papers address the battle of Rio Salado (1340); the nature of chivalric warfare as presented in the contemporary biography of "le bon duc" Louis de Bourbon (1337-1410); and the military content of the Lay of the Cid. Contributors: David Alan Parnell, Bernard S. Bachrach, David Bachrach, Francisco Garcia Fitz, Nicolas Agrait, Steven Muhlberger, John J.

Jefferson, James P. Ward, Michael Prestwich
