This is not just a book about medieval knights and Roman soldiers. This title offers something quite different because it looks at every sort of armour, in every application: from a snail to a 50,000-tonne battleship! Armour doesn't just offer protection from bullets and swords, because lethal force can be anything from a lion's claw to a burst of radiation. This entertaining and informative book looks at some rather unusual armour, such as spacesuits, police riot uniforms, builder's helmets,deep sea diving vessels and plastic armour, the material for the armour of the future, as well as examining animal armour and people in armour through the ages.
