Poll results Volume II

A while back, we installed a poll on our website with which you could vote for the themes of the last three issues of Volume II. With the editorial plan of issue II.3 now fixed, and thus with only 2 months to go before the proposal deadline of issue II.4, the poll has been closed on December 15. We received quite a number of votes. These are the results:

Medieval Warfare II-4

  •  Otto I versus the Magyars: 33 votes
  • The decline of Mongol power in Russia: the wars of Prince Dmitry Donskey: 22 votes
  • The rise of Hungary: the reign of Stephen I: 14 votes
  • Piracy in the Baltic Sea: 25 votes
  • Trade conflict: Denmark versus the Hanseatic league (1361-1370): 8 votes

  • The First War of Scottish Independence (1296-1328): 13 votes
  • Byzantium in danger: Arab incursions in Anatolia and the first siege of Constantinople (641-676): 20 votes

The underlined topics will be themes of the last three issues of Volume II. If you are interested in writing an article for one of these issues, either theme related or not, please send a proposal to editor@medieval-warfare.com.

The winners of a copy of one of the books have been randomly chosen from those voters who have sent me an email after they placed their vote. These are the results:

John Abner – David Dantiuste, Edward IV and the Wars of the Roses. Barnsley 2010

John Farthing – David Dantiuste, Edward IV and the Wars of the Roses. Barnsley 2010

Bob Fiorentino – Michael Mallett, Mercenaries and their Masters. Warfare in Renaissance Italy. Barnsley 2009.

We congratulate the winners and we hope that our next poll will be at least as successful.

Kind regards,
