Fills a vacuum in English language studies. [...] Will appeal to anyone with an interest in early Northern European swords; to Viking scholars, re-enactors, blade smiths and metallurgists. * CLASSIC ARMS AND MILITARIA *
An important and welcome book. I cannot imagine that there will be a better book published in English on this subject for a long time. -- PAUL MORTIMER, WITHOWINDE
Undoubtedly destined to become a standard reference for blade fanciers and re-enactors. * MEDIEVAL HISTORY *
A splendid book which gives a comprehensive overview of [these] swords. I find little to fault in Peirce's work other than that I wish it were three times the length. * RUNA *
A book with a clear audience in mind: anyone who wants to study a magnificent set of Viking artefacts. * SPECULUM *
An important reference work for scholars as well as for weapons enthusiasts. * SCANDINAVIAN STUDIES *
