This books is rather thin - only 96 pages - but there is not page crammed with gorgeous illustrations or colour pics ( generally two or three large ones on every page!!) that show military costumes in Medieval times. He covers all periods of the Middle Ages, and all levels from Lord and Knights, to bowman and common footsoldier, even women on the campaigns. For those who love history, but have no hands on experience and want to really visualise what each piece of equipment was, how it fit, was worn with other pieces of clothing and accoutrements you cannot find a better resource.
For writers here what you need, you can SEE what you are writing about more clearly with this in conjunction with other history references.
For reenactors, you cannot do without a copy.
Highly recommended for anyone interested in Medieval gear.
Medieval Military Costume is the most important living history book that I have found to date. Is has become an invaluable reference for my 14th century re-enactment club for historical clothing research. For anyone dedicated to living history work this book is a valuable addition to your reference library. Many aspects of historical clothing and armour are covered from soldier's helmets to men's underwear and from ladies's headpieces to boots. The garments and armour are historically created using the dyes, patterns, stitching and construction of their respective eras. If you are tired of the roleplaying versions of medieval history and have a taste for true history order this book today.
Embleton's book provides a surprising amount of densely informative text, accompanied by full color photographs of good-quality reenactment kits. The periods featured include the 10th through 15th centuries, though the 15th century gets the greatest amount of coverage. Interestingly, women (or at least the types of women likely to accompany a period army) are also included and receive a surprising amount of coverage also. I recommend this little gem to any 14th-15th century European reenactor, as well as to military and costume scholars of the medieval period.
