really liked it
bookshelves: non-fiction
Recommended for: those interested in swordplay
Read in January, 2004

For a layman like myself with a bit of an interest in swashbuckling and duels I found this to be a wonderfully engaging read. It's comprehensive and entertaining, filled with cultural anecdotes, vivid historical references and trivia. Very readable.
