About the Author

Jeffrey L Forgeng is curator of the Worcester Art Museum's Higgins Collection, the second largest collection of arms and armor in the Americas, and also teaches as Adjunct Professor of History at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. His academic work specializes in European treatises on the use of arms and armor.


It is clear that Jeffrey Forgeng is not only a technical expert on the weapon illustrated in this manual, but also a scholar deeply versed in the manuscript tradition of which this volume is a part as well as in the accumulated historiography that treats it. THE MEDIEVAL REVIEW A fantastic attempt to make the fecht-bucher increasingly accessible to a wider audience.... What sets this book apart is the contextualisation of the source and the excellent translations. MEDIEVAL WARFARE For anyone really interested in fighting styles and techniques, this is a must-read. SLINGSHOT Forgeng's translation is clear and accessible. His experience not only as a scholar of early swordsmanship, but as a practitioner, is readily apparent. . . . [Forgeng makes] a vital text more widely available for practitioners not only looking to better understand the use of single-handed swords of all types, but also to how those techniques complement other medieval martial practices.
