My dad loves this book.
Good reference book with expansion of the Oakeshott typology of European swords Some excellent pictures of swords including a good discussion of the Grandmesser Good technical information on sword making Weak on later European swords eg backswords etc No real focus on Asian swords outside of Japan On use I would say the book is opinion than provable fact Entertaining and useful but not quite as authoritative as the author suggests reasonable investment for a sword enthusiast.
