During the Middle Ages siege warfare played a vital role in military strategy. Sieges were far more numerous than pitched battles, ranging from small-scale affairs against palisaded earthworks to full-scale assaults on vast strongholds. Needless to say, the art of siege warfare assumed a unique importance to both invader and defender alike. In this fascinating addition to the Elite series, Christopher Gravett explores the different aspects of medieval siege warfare, from chivalrous formalities to 'surprise and treachery', in a text backed by numerous illustrations including 12 full page colour plates by Richard Hook.

Jan Glete, "Warfare at Sea, 1500-1650: Maritime Conflicts and the Transformation of Europe (Warfare and History)"
1999 | ISBN 0415214548 | PDF | 249 pages | 7,3 MB

Warfare at Sea is the first truly international study of warfare at sea in this period. Jan Glete places the history of warfare at sea within a readable, modern framework, bringing together historical research and analyzing questions on war, statebuilding, strategy and tactics, and economic and technological change. Commencing in the late fifteenth century with the introduction of gunpowder in naval warfare and rapid transformation of maritime trade, the book focuses on the scope and limitations of war before the advent of big battle fleets from the middle of the seventeenth century. The book also compares the social history of seamen and the early officer corps in several European countries. Warfare at Sea is essential reading for those interested in early modern history in general and in economic and naval history in particular.
