Of knyghthode and bataile -- Proem -- Recruitment and training -- The military structure -- Field tactics -- Urban and naval warfare -- Appendix: Concordance to Latin Vegetius.

"Composed for King Henry VI in the middle of the Wars of the Roses, Of Knyghthode and Bataile adapts the most widely used military manual in the Middle Ages into English verse. Responding to both the evolution of warfare and the historical background of his own time, its anonymous poet produced what one critic has called "one of the most brilliant military poems of the fifteenth century." That work is here re-edited from all four surviving manuscripts, and presented with a contextualizing introduction and copious notes and glosses"--
