The Castle at War in Medieval England and Wales
Available in Stock
Although there are many books on castles, few place them within the context of military history in general. Dan Spencer fills that gap by exploring the central role played by castles in the conflicts, civil wars and rebellions of the Middle Ages. As well as discussing dramatic events such as the sieges of Rochester and Kenilworth, he traces how castle architecture and military technology changed between the coming of the Normans and the death of Henry VIII.
