This broad-ranging work examines all edged weapons, featuring more than 400 examples from around the world. From the swords and spears of ancient Egypt to the pike and thrusting polearms of medieval Europe, and from the slashing sabres of the 17th century cavalry, to the presentation and dress swords used for show, pomp and civil ceremonies in the 1900s.
