The Cambridge Illustrated Atlas of Warfare: The Middle Ages
Warfare in the Middle Ages is often characterized as being dominated by lone, heroic knights or enormous mobs of plodding infantry. In this colorful and informative book, authors Hooper and Bennett debunk many of the myths surrounding medieval warfare to present a picture of a military culture as sophisticated as our modern one, with well organized armies and a high degree of tactical intelligence. The authors make their case by masterful use of high-quality maps, battle plans, and pictorial essays that explore such topics as siege warfare, the use of cavalry, the development of naval warfare, medieval science and warfare, and the legacy of the Middle Ages in modern military warfare. The Atlas spans the period from the coronation of Charlemagne to the last of the English Wars of the Roses and covers campaigns in and around Europe and the Mediterranean. The illustrations depict all levels of warfare from the strategic campaigns down to individual battles, fortifications, and weaponry. The lucid narrative that accompanies the pictures explains the course of campaigns and lessons to be learned from them. This book is written for the general reader with an interest in the history of warfare.

I don't usually make it a habit to read dictionaries or encyclopedias, or even atlases, but since the subject of this book was Medieval warfare I assumed that I would find it somewhat informing and entertaining, at least, to me. It fills the role of "atlas" quite well, providing the reader plenty of maps and a chronology of warfare, along with the many advancements of warfare during the period. It would be hard to label this book as some sort of "required" reading for the student or enthusiast as all of the information contained wherein can be found in many other, and better, sources. Still, it is not a wast of time reading it. I found the first couple of sections of the book rather tedious and boring, but as the study advanced to post 1066 it seemed to settle down into a comfortable rhythm and dispensed with the tedium of date and place regurgitation. I found the last section, "The Theory and Practice of Medieval Warfare", very interesting. It quickly covered topics such as arms and armor, military manuals, naval warfare and seige warfare, The most striking thing I noticed about this book was its lack of useful illustrations. The maps were extremely "busy" and really not worth the effort. The photo inserts were in many cases very small, hard to make out, and quite useless. Overall, coffee table material to be read, not browsed.
