Mike Loades, Books, Home and Garden, The Crossbow, Technologically sophisticated and powerful, the crossbow has long enjoyed a popular reputation for villainous superiority as it enabled a peasant to take out a fully armored noble knight from great range. The study of bow designs, trigger mechanisms, and spanning devices reveals a tale of considerable mechanical ingenuity; advances that produced a battlefield weapon requiring comparatively little training to use. It was an extremely useful weapon, and especially effective in siege warfare for both attack and defense.Known to the Ancient Greeks and the Chinese as early as the 5th century BC, the crossbow developed both in Western Europe and in the Far East. Technical advances allowed the development of ever more powerful bows. In this study acknowledged weaponry expert Mike Loades traces the origins, development, combat record, and lasting legacy of the crossbow, the formidable projectile weapon that played a key role in a host of battles across Europe and Asia.
