Long DescriptionThis comprehensive and highly illustrated, in colour and black and white, history of siege warfare and siege weapons, also contains a how-to guide for re-creating medieval siege weapons. Before the days of tanks and machine guns, there were scaling ladders, battering rams, siege towers, throwing machines, bores and daggers and weapons such as these symbolize power, protection, control and defiance. This book allows readers actually to re-create their own Medieval weapons with clear step-by-step instructions. Military history buffs can find siege weapons of Ancient Egypt, Judea, Assyria, Persia, Greece and Rome as well as those of the Gauls and Tueton, the Byzantine Empire, the Muslim World and Medieval Europe, all described in incredible detail accompanied by illustrations and photographs. The author offers new ways to reconstruct various siege weapons that are based on his analyses of the works of ancient and medieval authors including Vitruvius, Vegetius, Apollodorus,

We upgraded the database quite a bit. We are doing a better job of locating data around the web and for the most part. We have added links from one product to similar products to help you find what you are looking for.

So one thing you will see is that we have more links on the site and more images. We have improved our searching functions to give you more options.

Over the next few days we will be adding pricing information when we can get it for any given product.

We have also started linking more agressivly to Amazon. This is because people keep coming to the site trying to buy products. At first we were all about data with little interest in selling but since people are often trying to buy, we want to make it easier and besides, we make a couple bucks in the process.

We don't want to get in the way of the original goal of providing product and company data, but we want to provide you with as much other information as possible at the same time.
