Read full description of the books:
This book is amazing. In the usual equation of humor + violence + gore + good drawing = good book, this Horrible History focuses on the era of Knights. It has reports on battles and what gave who the upper hand. This book also contains information about ancient tournaments, such as jousting and melées and then teaches you techniques for winning them.
As usual, what Horrible History book would be complete without a timeline showing you the most well-known events of the time of Knights. Some of the most famous events include William the Conqueror and his friends making castles in England, and when they switched from chain-mail to complete iron plating.
If you've read any other books in the series you'll know these aren't exactly happy-happy-flower books but they're still very entertaining.
