When will my order arrive?


Written by an expert fence - whose previous titles include 'Cold Steel' and 'Fixed Bayonets' this is an illustrated late 19th century manual of fencing tactics designed to rescue the noble art of swordsmanship that the author considers has been debased, presumably by the arrival of increasingly sophisticated firearms and artillery. Full of diagrams illustrating correct fencing positions, this book will be of interest to anyone fascinated by fencing and bladed weapon tactics.
