ВОЕННАЯ ИСТОРИЯ The Art of Warfare in Western Europe During the Middle Ages Matthew Bennett. Professor Verbruggens masterly work applies rigorous standards to the analyses of the often very obscure surviving evidence, and comes up with conclusions which are very different from those of earlier generations of militaryhistorians.He begins by analysing the sources for our knowledge of the military history of the period, and assessing their reliability, going on to look at the constituent parts of the medieval army? Throughout, there is rich detail in support of the argument, drawn from primary sources. This leads on to the problems of strategy: whether to seek battle, fight a defensive war, or attempt a war of conquest. He then turns to the way in which it was used, the vexed question of medieval tactics, which is explored by analysing accounts of a series of major battles. Warfare is one of the central themes of medieval history, but until recently its technical details and organisation have not been properly investigated.
