The Art of Fencing with Thrusting- and Cutting-Weapons

The Art of Fencing with Thrusting- and Cutting-Weapons

VonAugust FehnTobias Zimmermann

Normalerweise in 3-5 Werktagen gedruckt
August Fehn was a military fencing master at the cadet school in Hannover in the middle of the 19th century. His work there ended only when Prussia annexed the previously independet Kingdom of Hannover in 1866. In his manual published in 1851, Fehn describes not only thrust-fencing in the Kreussler tradition, but also cut-fencing from a hanging and a steep guard as well as cut-and-thrust-fencing with the Pallasch, a heavy cavalry backsword, and finally, his unique take on bayonet fencing. His modular approach in teaching all of these disciplines makes this one of the most interesting fencing manuals of the 19th century. In this book, Tobias Zimmermann presents a translation that aims to stay close to the original text while still being easily understandable for the modern reader, complemented by an introduction for more context and a glossary including all the technical terms occuring in the text.
