The Cavalry Lance

The development of cavalry firearms and the widespread disappearance of armour from the European battlefield saw a decline in the use of the cavalry lance in early modern warfare. However, by 1800 the lance, much changed from its medieval predecessors in both form and function, was back. During the next century the use of the lance spread to the armed forces of almost every Western country, seeing action in every major conflict from the Napoleonic Wars to World War I including the Crimean and Franco-Prussian wars and across the Atlantic in the American Civil War. The lance even reached the colonial conflicts of the Anglo-Sikh and Boer wars. It was not until the disappearance of the mounted warrior from the battlefield that the lance was consigned to history. Featuring specially commissioned artwork and drawing upon a variety of sources, this is the engaging story of the cavalry lance at war during the 19th and 20th centuries, from Waterloo to the Somme.

No period of British history generates such deep interest as the reign of Elizabeth I, from 1558 to 1603. The individuals and events of that era continue to be popular topics for contemporary literature and film, and Elizabethan drama, poetry, and music are studied and enjoyed everywhere by students, scholars, and the general public. The Historical Dictionary of the Elizabeth World provides clear definitions and descriptions of people, events, institutions, ideas, and terminology relating in some significant way to the Elizabethan period. The first dictionary of history to focus exclusively on the reign of Elizabeth I, the Dictionary is also the first to take a broad trans-Atlantic approach to the period by including relevant individuals and terms from Irish, Scottish, Welsh, American, and Western European history.

Le armi antiche

Bibliografia ragionata nel Servizio Bibliotecario Nazionale

Gli studi sulle armi antiche stanno conoscendo negli ultimi anni un enorme incremento e diversificazione. Dagli studi di tradizione storico-artistica, museologica o di catalogazione sull’oggetto-arma, fino a quelli di storia militare, economica e produttiva, l’abbondanza e la varietà di libri e articoli ha reso complessa la realizzazione di bibliografie d’ampio respiro. Le armi antiche. Bibliografia ragionata nel Servizio Bibliotecario Nazionale di Carlo De Vita, Marco Merlo e Luca Tosin, si propone di rispondere all’esigenza di un’opera bibliografica unitaria che tenga conto dei più recenti sviluppi della disciplina oplologica nei suoi molteplici aspetti. Accanto agli studi generali e tipologici sulle armi, le fortificazioni, le armi bianche e le armi da fuoco, sono raccolti anche gli studi sulle fonti, le armerie, le aste, i cataloghi di mostre e le grandi collezioni, così come gli studi di interesse produttivo e di costume e sulla legislazione vigente in materia di armi. La scelta dei titoli presenti in SBN (Servizio bibliotecario nazionale), deriva dalla volontà degli autori di coniugare la raccolta del materiale bibliografico edito con l’effettiva reperibilità dei testi sul territorio nazionale. Bibliografia quindi, che non sia una semplice raccolta dell’edito, ma una selezione ragionata degli studi disponibili per fornire un utile supporto agli studiosi e agli appassionati di armi antiche.
