About the Author

Ken Mondschein is an adjunct professor at American International College, and a fencing instructor at the Higgins Armory Museum.


"This is a fascinating little book. . . . Ken Mondschein's selections demonstrate effectively how seriously training for combat was undertaken in the later middle ages."-- Medieval Review
"The fighting manuals of the late Middle Ages are intriguing windows into the skills that knights and men-at-arms trained in preparation for battles, duels, and tournaments. But these books--highly illustrated and many written in verse--are also works of art and literature."--Military & Politics Podcast
"[This book] humanizes the experiences of medieval peoples, both scribes and warriors."--Comitatus
"A serious study of the continuation of medieval weaponry and contest in the Renaissance. This is interesting in itself and may be of use to fight directors of productions of the plays of Shakespeare and others. Elizabethans enjoyed not only ceremonial jousts but martial arts matches such as the one that adds so much excitement to the end of Hamlet."--Bibliotheque d'Humanisme et Renaissance
"The book offers readers a glimpse at the finest example of all the surviving Fiore manuscripts, including the story of its author, the exquisite illustrations, and the brutally effective techniques taught within. All of this is complemented by Mondschein's insightful commentary."--De Re Militari
