Opis produktu:

While Scandinavia's 'Viking Age' is one of the most studied aspects of early medieval history, much less has been published about the centuries that followed. Yet the armies of Sweden, Norway and Denmark offer fascinating differences from the rest of medieval Western Europe, both in their organisation and their war gear - due partly to their remoteness, climate and terrain, but partly to their long freedom from the feudal system of other kingdoms. This book explains the special nature of Scandinavian armies, shaped by the relative weakness of kings and aristocrats, and the contrasts between the separate nations of the North.

Contents
Introduction · Chronology of major events · The passing of the Viking age · Denmark: German influence - the feudal system - the nobility, and heavy cavalry · Norway: trading centre but military backwater · Sweden: armies of the early Baltic campaigns - relations between the classes · Armour, weapons and tactics: the importance of the crossbow · Finland: a tribal frontier

David Lindholm MA, was born in 1970. He was educated at the University of Lund in Sweden where he studied medieval archaeology, history and ethnology. He has also made a special study of medieval weaponry and warfare both from the analytical or scientific perspective, and from the practical point of view. David Lindholm continues his researches in these fields while at the same time teaching medieval fighting arts, primarily with the sword and pole arms. Meanwhile he also runs educational courses and seminars on this subject, both in private and at museums and in university departments.

Born in 1944, David Nicolle worked in the BBC’s Arabic service for a number of years before gaining an MA from the School of Oriental and African Studies, London, and a doctorate from Edinburgh University. He has written numerous books and articles on medieval and Islamic warfare, and has been a prolific author of Osprey titles for many years.
