Mediaeval Heraldry, Terence Wise

Mediaeval Heraldry, Terence Wise

This well illustrated short book does not pretend to be a guide to the complex subject of mediaeval heraldry or coats of arms but is a basic introduction to the heraldry used in 14th and 15th century Europe. It is book for those interested in military history and wargaming rather than for finding your family coat of arms. That said it is well illustrated with 7 pages of colour plates and loads of black and white diagrams and photos showing crests and shield marking etc. It is a good easy to read intro and if that’s what you are looking for this book is for you.
