This book visually brings the past to life with colour photographs of re-enacted battles from throughout British history, whilst the written commentary, using historical eyewitness accounts, describes what it was actually like to fight with sword, spear or musket from Hastings to Flodden and Naseby to Culloden. Questions examined include: how far a soldier could march in medieval armour; what it was like to be a female camp follower in the army of Charles I; how to aim a long bow to bring down a charging knight.
