This is the first-ever complete translation of the anonymous fifteenth-century fightbook commonly known as the Gladiatoria Fechtbuch. It contains detailed information on armored spear combat, halfsword combat, dagger combat, and ground fighting along with unarmored techniques for Long Shields, sword and buckler and staff combat. This book is a must have item for anyone with an interest in medieval combat or knighthood.
Please Note: A few of the pictures in this book are of poor quality, however I have done what I could to clean these pictures and all of them are clear enough to interpret. I have made an effort to show some of the plates in the preview available here so that you, the customer, have a fair notion of what you're getting. Note: This is the perfect-bound edition.

I greatly enjoy being able to hold this fechtbuch in my hands. Aside from a few poor plate images, which the author acknowledges, and which should NOT detract from the utility and enjoyment be gained from this translation. In my opinion the author has provided a translation of a very under-used fechtbuch. Armored combat is what knights and men-at-arms DID.
