Medieval Warfare is written for an intelligent, but casual reader. Articles have a depth lacking in many more general military history publications. The bulk of each issue is organized around a central theme, allowing for an especially thorough analysis of that subject from a variety of perspectives. These themes are suggested and voted on yearly by our readership – meaning that you have unprecedented control over the contents of Medieval Warfare. From the wars of Cnut the Great to warrior bishops in the Middle Ages, each theme includes articles analyzing major battles, units, weapons, fortifications and fighting styles. Using the latest scholarship, our authors make warfare in this diverse and confusing period accessible.
Besides its articles, Medieval Warfare brings history to life through original maps, drawings and paintings. We specially commission our artists to create accurate illustrations of medieval warriors and warfare. These works are supplemented by photographs showing contemporary art and artifacts. Many of these items are seldom published in conventional histories, and always include the unique context that only Medieval Warfare can provide.
