The Battle of Palm Sunday Field

This is the next book on the Lion Rampant reading list and, after the first couple of chapters, it's well worth it. Although the narrative skips around a bit the overall coverage is very good, with some useful details on contemporary tactics. It was interesting to find out that the impact of an 'arrow storm' would be the equivalent of forty tons of arrows in the space of ten to fifteen minutes!

  1. Two identical armies (more or less) fighting each other with lots of bows... I must go and resurrect my WotR project to see what would happen!
