Editorial plan

Medieval Warfare is published every two months, and consists of ten or more articles in each issue. We have a theme for each issue, and most of the articles will be devoted to that area. Additionally, every issue will also feature pieces on other aspects of medieval military history, so that our readers can have a diverse experience. If you are interested in writing for our magazine, please contact the editor.

Here are some of the issues coming soon:

Medieval Warfare VII-3

Release: mid-June

Theme: Tournaments

Steven Mulhberger leads our issue that looks at the the rise of tournaments and jousts, from their beginnings as ‘bloodless battles’ to the events which were more theatre than sport. We will be covering tournaments from Byzantium to the Holy Roman Empire, and feature the famous Combat of the Thirty.

Medieval Warfare Volume VII-4

Release: Mid-August

Theme: The Battle of Hattin

The First Crusade had given European Christians control of Jerusalem and the Holy Land. In the closing decades of twelfth-century, the Crusader States were threatened by Saladin, a Kurdish military leader who was seeking to unite Egypt and Syria under his rule. His clashes with the Crusaders would lead up to the Battle of Hattin in 1187. John France will be telling us about the battle in an issue that will look at warfare in the Middle East during the crusades.

Medieval Warfare Volume VII-5 

Release: Mid-October

Theme: The Murder of Charles the Good

In 1127, Count Charles of Flanders would fall victim to conspiracy among his nobles, and die at the altar of a church in Bruges. Soon the city would be the scene of violence and war, while the kings of France and England would set their schemes in place to become the master of Flanders.

Medieval Warfare Volume VII-6 

Release: Mid-December

Theme: El Cid and the Christian Reconquest

This issue will follow the life of Rodrigo Diaz, the man behind the legend of El Cid. While the tales of the Middle Ages would present him as a Christian leader aimed at reconquering Spain from the Moors, the real Rodrigo has a much more interesting story to tell. Read about him as well as the rise of the kingdoms of Castile and Aragon.
