Short Description

The English Longbow, Myths, Legends and how to Teach, Coach and shoot it by Mel Price.

Fantastic book and every copy is signed by the Author.

This book contains 380 pages with many monochrome photo's and drawings. The text covers such issues as Englishness and how it has influenced the British over the centuries, and how the bow developed and how it was used during early mankind. The English battles are written as a narrative, but asks questions that have either been ignored or unanswered correctly to hide the truth of the winners who wrote history in their own favour. Covering many myths and legends, the book tries to uncover the truth of historical events such as the scotching of the Welsh, the Scots led by William Wallace as well as his King the ambitious Bruce, and the probable betrayal by him or his supporters, who were jealous of Wallace and his popularity with the ordinary clan Scots. The Battle of Sluys is dramatically portrayed as is the following Battles of Crecy and the shameful killing of the French knights at Poitiers.
