Warfare & Weaponry

How did warfare evolve from the Dark Ages through the Renaissance? What were the earliest weapons and who were the soldiers that used them?

Condottiere - Renaissance Mercenary Captains star
"Condottieri" is the Italian name for mercenary captains who, during the Renaissance period, provided the bulk of the armed forces for the various Italian states.

Crossbows star
The crossbow was introduced to Medieval Europe in about the 9th century. It was one of the few weapons that was effective against mounted knights in plate armor. The crossbow could be used effectively with as little as a week of training, making it the ideal weapon for peasants.

Medieval Knights star
Ever wonder what it would take to become a knight? What did knights do? Well, here are some answers.

Medieval Siege Engines star
Siege engines were used since ancient times, but they were used extensively in medieval times, and the trebuchet was a midieval invention.
