Secrets of the English War Bow - Hugh D H Soar

Secrets of the English War Bow by Hugh D H Soar, Mark Stretton master blacksmith, and Joseph Gibbs bowyer, demonstrates how a war bow and its associated arrow heads and shafts may have been constructed and used. In addition to showing the complete manufacture of a bow from tree selection to stringing and how specialized arrowheads were forged and attached to shafts, Secrets of the English War Bow provides information on the actual performance of the war bow, including the bow's effectiveness against various materials and, for the first time, its use against moving targets, since bows were often drawn against mounted soldiers. Illustrated in colour and black and white.
