Written by the Wallace Collection Curator of Arms and Armour Tobias Capwell, this detailed and lavishly illustrated book chronicles the armour worn by English men-at-arms during the later phases of the Hundred Years War.

For the first time many unknown or rarely published visual and documentary sources have been brought together to reveal beautiful and intimidating accoutrements. Huge sums were paid by the elite for these human exo-skeletons of hardened steel glittering with engraved and gilded decoration. Employing rich imagery in diverse media, combined with detailed technical and decorative analysis, Armour of the English Knight creates a unique visual journey through the world of the medieval armoured warrior.
