The Composite Bow by Mike Loades

The composite bow emerged from the steppes of Central Asia before the advent of recorded history; its devastating battlefield success prompted its adoption by cultures as varied as the Romans, the Koreans and the Ottoman Turks. Featuring specially commissioned full-colour artwork and authoritative analysis, this is the enthralling story of one of history's most enduring and influential weapons.

 An ancient design, emerging from Central Asia in the second millennium BC, the composite bow was adopted by a staggering variety of cultures, from nomadic tribal peoples such as the Huns, Turks and Mongols, to mighty empires such as the Romans, Byzantines, Persians, Arabs and Chinese.
