Sixteenth century warfare provided new challenges to the knight, not the least being the rise and rise of gunpowder. But even as the technology of warfare advanced, the mounted knight continued to flourish, his aristocratic superiority ensuring that innovations in both defence and attack could be used for his benefit in the achievement of victory and personal glory. In his exciting new book, Stephen Turnbull reveals the continuing strength of the Renaissance Knight as he roams with his subject across western Europe, Italy, North Africa, Hungary, Istanbul, Budapest, Rhodes, Malta and Cyprus. He brings this great canvas of history to life, illuminating it throughout with the finest detail of the smallest incident. Scheherazade herself could not have told the story of the Renaissance Knights with such guile.Biografía del autor:
