The medieval archer by Jim Bradbury( Book )

29 editions published between 1985 and 2008 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: The Medieval Archer discusses the changing role of the archer in medieval society. It traces the history of the archer in the medieval period, from the Norman Conquest to the Wars of the Roses. From a close study of early evidence, Mr. Bradbury shows that the archer's role before the time of Edward I was an important but rarely documented one, and that his new prominence in the fourteenth century was the result of changes in development of military tactics rather than the introduction of the famous 'longbow'

The Battle of Hastings by Jim Bradbury( Book )

19 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and Italian and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Battle of Hastings is probably the best-known and perhaps the most significant battle in English history. Its effects were deeply felt at the time, causing a lasting shift in cultural identity and national pride. Jim Bradbury here explores the full military background to the battle and investigates both the sources for our knowledge of what actually happened in 1066 and the role that the battle plays in national myth. The Battle of Hastings starts by looking at the Normans - who they were, where they came from - and the career of William before 1066. Next, Jim Bradbury turns to the Saxons

"The Routledge Companion to Medieval Warfare is presented in themed, illustrated sections, each preceded by a narrative outline offering a brief introduction.

Stephen and Matilda : the civil war of 1139-53 by Jim Bradbury( Book )

19 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Civil war and the battle for the English Crown dominated the reign of King Stephen, and this popular account is the only complete account of the complex and fascinating military situation. The war is examined in detail throughout the various campaigns, battles and sieges of the period, including the two major battles at the Standard and Lincoln, showing that Stephen always held more ground than his opponents and was mostly on the offensive. The nature of the warfare and the reasons for its outcome are examined, along with comment on the strategy, tactics, technology in arms and armour, an
Philip Augustus : king of France, 1180-1223 by Jim Bradbury( Book )

17 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first major study in English this century of the life and reign of one of the greatest of medieval monarchs, Philip Augustus (Philip II), conqueror and crusader, who ruled France from 1180 to 1223 and in the process transformed both his kingdom and the fortunes of the Capetian dynasty. Friend and confidant of all the Angevins in turn - Henry II, and his sons Richard the Lionheart and John - he was a master at playing off the members of that notoriously turbulent family against each other; and he outlived, and outplayed, them all. His crushing defeat of John (and John's Flemish allies and the emperor Otto) at the battle of Bouvines on 29 August 1214 confirmed his ascendancy, and form the dramatic climax of both the reign and this book
The Capetians : kings of France, 987-1328 by Jim Bradbury( Book )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following the demise of the Carolingian dynasty in 987 the French lords chose Hugh Capet as their king. He was the founder of a dynasty that lasted until 1328. Although for much of this time, the French kings were weak, and the kingdom of France was much smaller than it later became, the Capetians nevertheless had considerable achievements and also produced outstanding rulers, including Philip Augustus and St Louis. This wide-ranging book throws fascinating light on the history of Medieval France and the development of European monarchy
