Knightly Dueling is a complete overview of the fighting arts of German chivalric dueling, on horse and on foot, during the late Middle Ages and early Renaissance. Through the words and pictures of original source texts of the great German fight masters of the 14th through 16th centuries - extraordinary works that poetically preserved medieval methods of armed combat - it reveals knightly dueling for what it truly was: mortal combat over some grave matter with battlefield weaponry and armour. Until now, no single book has encompassed and clarified the scattered existing historical information on German dueling with swords, lances, daggers, pollaxes and other weapons.Knightly Dueling shows the ruthless reality of man-to-man combat of the German Kunst des Fechtens (art of fighting), providing a thorough understanding of Johannes Liechtenauer's Roszfechten (horse fighting) and Kampffechten (duel fighting). It gives Middle High German transcriptions, as well as the first and only modern English translations, of works from various fight books by Liechtenauer's renowned masterly interpreters, including Hanko Döbringer, Peter von Danzig, Hans Talhoffer and Andre Lignitzer. The book also presents an illustrated blow-by-blow account of a deadly duel from a German Fechtbuch (fight book); primary source information regarding specific training of noblemen for duels and the training of noble youth in the combat arts; and a unique glossary of historical German chivalric terms for arms and armour.Lavishly illustrated with many pieces of period artwork, Knightly Dueling restores the concept of German chivalry to its rightful martial role and is a must for any serious scholar of the dynamic field of European martial arts.
Every so often, Paladin Press comes out with a gem among its gravel. This is one of those rare gems.

I found the book's transcription and translation very well done and explained explicitly--making it, contextual accurate and historically accountable.

As a sound historical reference, it visually and descriptively demonstrated the complexity and the nuances of what chivalry was during medieval Western Europe, giving a solid view of what true martial traditions addressing mortal combat. It further shows how practitioners/masters maintained such a tradition within that social construct of their appropriate periods. The author stresses the importance of social and operational context throughout the book's pages, making for a very intelligent read, addressing the nature of chivalry and warrior-ways of this time period.

There has been a vast array of materials printed and video-formatted, lately, informing, teaching and instructing in these extinct forms of combat. Some of these offerings are very bad, some are just mediocre, but some are truly exceptional. This book fits into this latter category as being most excellent, in its information/accuracy context, its instruction presentation, and in its approach for learning what was a way of life in past, medieval days for those aspiring to knightly pursuits of warrior-ways.

Some have said it is not a "How-To" manual. I disagree. Paying close attention to the transcribed translation, and then heeding the author's explications, detailing a clearer picture of the actions from its contextual environment, I find it highly instructional, as it is very accurate to what went down in actual killing combat--be it a duel or battle for that matter. Sure it may not own photos of re-enactors engaging in specifically detailed actions and techniques as a detailed how to manual of this sort maybe presented.

One does get details, set in proper context, from those who did engage in actual mortal combat in the day, with the author's unbiased explication to paint a clear idea of what does happen in such combative events. Sure, as with anything written, we must be careful, but the words written in medieval times addressing up-close personal combat are consistent with similar patterns of what happens in hand-to-hand, killing combat today. When firearms are not being used and souls collide to kill one another, the patterns remain consistent, regardless. This book shows these consistencies, repeatedly

While going to battle with sword and shield is obsolete, there are souls out there who have engaged the enemy up-close and personally with improvised weapons, and even edged weapons, who know what these old "fechtmeisters" attempted to convey. I am certain that if modern day "fechtmeister" who has 'been there and done that' would read this, he would come away thinking, "Hmm, pretty well done, actually." And so it is.
If you are more of a practitioner than a scholar, then this is probably not for you.

If you really love getting into technicalities in translation, customs, history, horse equipment, arms etc etc
Then you've hit the "motherload"!!

If your focus is that of a martial artist, that techniques and fighting style is what matters, I suggest you move on to YouTube.
This is a great book by Mr. Hull. He treats the academic side of the historical European martial arts movement with great care and establishes a historical model for what is chivalry. As a researcher, practitioner and instructor of the German Kunst des Fechtens, this is a welcomed addition to my library.
Pretty interesting. This book is a pretty good insight into the knights who dueled. Some parts of what they were about were very gory too.
This would be much better if it was illustrated
This is an impressive work. It collects and translates major writings that follow the Liechtenauer school as it evolved from the 14th century through the 16th. It is not, as many might wish, a how to guide with step by step instructions, but then, neither were the original manuals. It offers a rare insight into the minds of medieval fighters, not theoreticians or jurists, but actual fighters who lived or died by their skills. It also cites its sources and offers a good bibliography as well as a lexicon of German fighting terminology. I have found it to be useful in my Historic European Martial Arts studies, as well as in my study of medieval German.
This books covers the basics of knightly combat in the Holy Roman Empire from a contextual standpoint. The book is more a history of dueling, with specific plates referencing them, than a 'how to' book. Of note is a blow by blow visual account of a duel in full armor.

The book makes a great addition to any WMA library for a deeper understanding of the art and history.
The excellent translations, lexicons and historic illustrations add up to an amazingly compact overview of ancient German dueling. "Knightly Dueling" is a valuable resource for anyone who may wish to delve into this fascinating part of European history -- theatre directors, costumers,writers, historians, artists, filmmakers and so on. Congratulations to authors Jeffrey Hull, Monika Maziarz, and Grzegorz Zabinski.
