Horrible Histories Handbooks: Knights

Gallant, bold heroes? Umm, no. More like ruthless killers obsessed with cruel crusades. Forget the fairytale days of old when knights were always bold and damsels were always in distress. Brace yourself for the terrible truth about these cold-blooded killers! From Arthur and his mythical Round Table knights to warrior kings and cruel crusaders, discover the war-like weapons knights used, the wicked tricks they played and the rotten rules they fought by. Just like the Horrible Histories slogan says, it’s got all the gore – and more!
