    I actually ran across a couple of those illustrations back a few years ago when I was looking up stuff for the fighting books in the book mod for CoAS. Though at the time, I really had no proper historical reference. This documentary helps put in to perspective just how important those books were.

    I had never heard of the Wiktenauer, looks like there is some really great information there on both weapons and techniques. Now I just gotta figure out how to get the free time to look through it all!

    Yes there was and is a lot of information out there. I was a little disappointed in that most of the interest seems to be in the big bad Great Swords. My interests went in the direction of two bladed fighting which is hardly shown at all in that documentary.
