MEDIA REVIEWS
"Lavishly illustrated in color and black and white, this book is a must for all historical fans of the horse-charging, lavishly dressed warrior... Not to be missed by the historian or those with an interest in history just a little outside the norm." -Timothy Baghust, "The Traveler "(May 2008)
"Christopher Gravett's "Knight: Noble Warrior of England 1200-1600" examines the figure and actions of the knight in medieval times, surveying his development, social standing, training and battles in great detail. While any library strong in college-level medieval history needs this, it's also the military history collection that will benefit from its thorough review, accompanied by original color art and modern photography of armor. Very highly recommended indeed." -"California Bookwatch "(May 2008)
