The evidence for this scholarly and detailed study is drawn in the first instance from documentary sources... contemporary illustrations reinforce the written evidence... The book contains much that is of wider interest than the subject matter suggests: the various mottoes used by Edward III are discussed, and the problem of his expanding waistline is revealed; there are interesting sidelights on the new orders of chivalry. --English Historical Review (Michael Prestwich)

It is a book that is full of detailed descrption, although the lack of colour illustrations is definately a minus. I had hoped that with the re-issue the photographs would have been re-taken in colour.
I found it to be very useful, but definately not something to sit down and read - it is definately a "study" type of read.
Having now obtained a copy of the original 1980 hardback Boydell Press edition, I can confirm that the figures do indeed look like scans of the original photographs from this book (which are, by the way, useful and informative).
