Not for experienced fighters.11 October 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
Hardly any techniques. Lot's of pictures but only 3 pages per weapon/style. Mostly just goes over hand positions and basic information. I would not recommend this for anyone who has experience in Rapier or cut and thrust fighting. You learn all of this the first week of practice.

A Look At History4 October 2013 - Published on Amazon.com
Capt Alfred Hutton was one of a handful of men of his day who had an abiding interest in the techniques of historical swordsmanship. He was a sabre fencing instructor in the Royal Army and a member of the Bartitsu club along with Egerton Castle and Arthur Conan Doyle. The work of Hutton, Castle, and men like them were forerunners of today's worldwide interest in what are now being referred to as the 'European Martial Arts.' This book is a good place to start.

Good source for historical writing about sword fighting?3 March 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
Great material from a historical perspective. Can't comment on practicalities but it seems like historically accurate instructions with some comments on practicalities of real combat compared to competitive sword moves. A good source for historical writing I think.

Strongly recommended for armchair swordfighters.7 April 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
Really fine reproduction of this book. The order came very fast. The pictures are helpful for understanding the text which was written for people who understood swordfighting. En Garde!
