Fighting With Blade, Bayonet & Staff Weapons
Two Books in One. Included is
Broad-Sword and Single-Stick
by R.G.Allanson-Winn and C. Phillipps-Wolley
The Art Of Fencing
by Monsieur L'Abbat
For good value this book combines two excellent instructional pieces on the art of close quarter combat with edged weapons and staves. The first book deals comprehensively with the use of the short sword, bayonet, staves and various other clubs and event instruction on personal defense using everyday items such as umbrellas and singlestick. The second book is a classic monograph on fighting, not necessarily according to the rules of modern sport, when both opponents are armed with sharp edged weapons, this provides an interesting insight into a time when combat was invariably fought 'eye to eye'.
