Here is an authoritative, picture-packed history of military daggers and bayonets. All patterns of daggers are examined in detail, from the utilitarian Saxon scramasax used at Hastings to lavishly decorated Cinquedas, Landsknecht and Holbein daggers of the late Renaissance. The history, development and battlefield deployment of the bayonet is outlined from early times through the 20th century. One chapter deals exclusively with how to amass, restore and preserve an edged weapon collection.
