" Siege Weapons of the Far East (1) AD 612-1300" von Turnbull, Stephan
New Vanguard 43 Author: Stephen Turnbull Illustrator: Wayne Reynolds The prevalence of particular fortress types in medieval China, Mongolia, Japan and Korea demanded the evolution of different modes of siege warfare in each country. The wealthy walled towns of China, the mountain fortresses of Korea and the military outposts of Japan each presented different challenges to besieging forces, and this book reveals the diversity of tactics that were developed to meet these challenges. Most of the Far Eastern weaponry of this period originated in China, but was adapted to fit the demands of siegecraft across the region and the individual strengths and weaknesses of each piece of machinery are studied here. Contents: - Introduction - Siege Warfare in the Far East AD 612 -1300 - Crossbow Siege Artillery - Catapult Siege Artillery - Incendiary Devices - Gas Bombs - Colour Plate Commentary - Index Osprey 48 pages, Paperback, 2001
