Modern soldiers use automated weaponry and digital technology, but other aspects of their gear – daggers, helmets, armoured jackets, canteens – would be familiar to Roman legionaries or Viking raiders. These two comprehensively illustrated books demonstrate the developments in warfare and weaponry over the course of civilization, showing, with examples from the collection of the Royal Armouries, how soldiers fought and were equipped from the Mesopotamians to modern special forces, and surveying weaponry from the spear and the longbow to the AK47. Slip-cased.
