    This book is full of the history and lore of the sword. Richard Burton (not the actor) was a historian, an explorer, and a fencer, and he managed to blend all three interests in this fascinating biography of "the Queen of Weapons." His passion for the sword is obvious as he follows it from its origins in prehistory to Roman times. For Burton, no praise is too great, no detail too small when it comes to the sword. He had a burning desire to illuminate, to tell what he knew, and this he did with the full force of a tidal wave.

    In eloquent, captivating prose, Burton describes:

    • Dirks

    • Daggers

    • Knives

    • Sabers

    • Cutlasses

    • The origin of the weapon

    • The weapons of the age of wood

    • The Copper Age of weapons

    • The Iron Age of weapons

    • The sword in ancient Egypt

    • The sword in ancient Greece

    • And more

    Nearly three hundred line drawings enhance Burton’s richly detailed text. Any reader of history or student of weaponry will find this book a fascinating, highly enjoyable read.
