Description
Probably introduced to England by Norman invaders in 1066, the crossbow was once considered so barbarous a device that it was prohibited as "a weapon hateful to God and unfit for Christians" by the Lateran Council of 1139. Engineer, historian, and ballistics expert Ralph Payne-Gallwey here describes the evolution of military and sporting crossbows, including their dimensions, components, and ranges. Along with original and historical drawings he provides hard-to-find information on crossbow construction, details on such modern weapons as bullet- and bolt-shooting crossbows, and a look at oddities like the Chinese repeating crossbow.
