This volume, published in conjunction with the honoree's seventy-fifth birthday, reflects the breadth and the vibrancy of the current scholarly work dealing with warfare in the Middle Ages. It includes seventeen studies that cover the full chronology from the fourth century to the fourteenth, and a geographic spread from London to the Levant.

All seventeen contributions are at least competently executed and valuable; several of them are of an excellence and significance not commonly found in collections of this sort. Many of the better ones fall into one of two categories: either taking a small subject and using it to cast light on a much bigger topic, or taking a big subject the author has already addressed in greater depth and distilling his findings relating to warfare into a short overview.
 
A book like this, written in honor of a specific historian whose writings have been important in military history, will be most interesting to students of Medieval Military History. That said, these essays are broad enough to interest readers who are interested in battle studies, religious history, art history, the relationship between war and society, or those who enjoy biographical sketches of notable and important historical personages. The broader one’s appreciation of Medieval history, the more one will find of interest here
