Five questions about medieval warfare answered
Our friends at Routledge have created the Lessons from Warfare in Medieval Europe series - five videos featuring historians answering questions within the field. Most of the videos feature Bernard S. Bachrach and David S. Bachrach, authors of the new book Warfare in Medieval Europe c.400-c.1453. Here are the questions they answer:
What do we know about sieges during the medieval period?
What kinds of military technology were used in medieval warfare?
What were the cultural and logistical aspects of medieval warfare?
How successful was the Byzantium Empire in their medieval warfare strategy?
What social factors prompted men to join armies and partake in warfare during the medieval period?
You can learn more about Warfare in Medieval Europe c.400-c.1453 by visiting Routledge's website.
Also, our next issue of Medieval Warfare will feature David S. Bachrach writing about the Ottonians and the Battle of Vlaardingen. Check back with our website to learn more about the upcoming issue.
