"In this book Frederick Wilkinson traces the story of all the main categories of hand weapons, from neolithic times up to the ceremonial weapons of the twentieth century, with the same blend of deep knowledge and high readability which distinguished his widely acclaimed Antique Firearms. The superb colour plates, commissioned especially for the volume from Paul Forrester, provide a brilliant panorama of the evolution of the edged weapon, and a fitting sequel to his impressive series of studies in the earlier volume."
