This book is a great reference to the history of the longbow.
I do wish I could pick up a digital copy of the book as well but I love having this in my collection.
It's sad that Sir Hardy will not be with us to share more of his amazing knowledge.

The contents of this exhaustive history of the longbow are outstanding. Research and illustrations are top notch, as is the wealth of information provided by the authors on the use of archery as a weapon down through the years precding firearms. I would have liked to have seen some discussion on how it must have been making the successful transition from practicing against stationary targets in the butts versus shooting at live combatants moving, riding, running and trying their best to kill the archer with their own weapons. MY CHIEF COMPLAINT is that the book is printed in some strange typeface I have never seen before. It is very thin and very light, making it extremely difficult to focus on and read. I own thousands of books and have collected them for 40 years but have never encountered this typeface in a modern book before. So beware buyer, the contents are excellent IF you can read the typeface!

Bought this for my husband for Christmas. He read it cover to cover without putting it down. If this is your kind of topic I don't think you will be disappointed. Robert Hardy has done a great job of course!

Uaha
For anyone interested in the history of the elegant and decptively simple longbow, this is THE book to read. Highly recommended!
Robert Hardy's 'Longbow: A Social and Military History' is elegant, beautifully written. It permits old folks like me to re-live the glory days of youth, when we used to make our own bows and arrows and set out to see to it that good triumphs over evil, whilst enjoying the illusion of scholarly maturity. My wife and I read passages of Hardy's wonderful prose out loud to one another, and time stops - a good thing, at our age.
