New Book: W. Wilson's 16th Century Sword Combat:

Postby mackenzie cosens » Fri May 18, 2012 11:14 am

I have just finished reading William Wilson's 16th Century Sword Combat: Bolognese Fencing and the Italian Sidesword Era Kindle Edition -no images.

I think its a nice introduction to Bolognese and particular Dall' Agocchie. In its current version there are some formatting issues, possibly some typos, no images and only readable on Kindle or Kindle e-reader software (free from Amazon), but this is more then made-up by drills, lesson plans, supporting information and really affordable price $2.99us.

I know there is a plan to release a updated print and kindle version later this year, but for me, the current version was a steal. Has anyone else look at this ebook?

I haven't seen it, but I think I'll have to check it out (especially if it's only $2.99). Thanks for the heads up.
