How to fight, 16th century style

I'm having a bit of trouble figuring out how to go page to page, and it is a German website and the text is in Latin, but this online 16th century book on fighting techniques looks fascinating.

Check it out here.

I like this illustration, as it looks as if the contest is "I can cut my head off quicker than you can cut yours off."

I have a blog up at Word Wenches about home. The snowdrop picture is from there.

Oh, and a wanton plug for my friend Sharon Ashwood's Ravenous, just out now. It's urban fantasy, vampires, people-eating houses, ghostbusting, romance, and written with a wicked wit. Go here to learn more.
