About the Author I was hoping this book would be a photographic presentation of body armor throughout the ages. In this I was sorely disappointed

Robert C. Woosnam-Savage is the curator of the Royal Arms Museum, in Leeds, England. I was hoping this book would be a photographic presentation of body armor throughout the ages. In this I was sorely disappointed. While the book is billed as part of a "photographic history" series, it is actually a light history with some color paintings of various types of armor in it. Unfortunately, the paintings are usually not very detailed (the medieval armor is nicely done, however) and, as someone who was looking for a book to use as a visual reference for illustrations, I was very disappointed.

So cool! Great resource for any kid who is interested in armor and war in general. So much history to be learned just by looking through this book. We had a copy from the library and bought this one so we can look through it anytime.
